Age Related Macular Degeneration

Eye Specialist In Wakad

Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD):

  • The painless disorder that affects the macula, in one or usually both eyes, causing progressive loss of central and detailed vision.
  • It is the leading cause of significant vision loss among patients over the age of 50.
  • Does not lead to total blindness but patient may find it difficult to do read, drive and recognize people.
  • The area surrounding the macula is not affected so peripheral vision remains clear and patient can usually still move around fairly freely.

Diagnosis And Treatment:

The diagnosis of ARMD is conducted through the series of latest and advanced tests. We provide the best and cost-effective treatments for age-related macular degeneration. In many cases, the risk of progression of visual loss caused due to Dry ARMD can be decreased by giving the high dose of multivitamins. But for the Wet form of ARMD, there are a few treatment options available, like intravitreal injections, lasers. However, in both types of ARMD, the best outcomes occur if the disease is diagnosed before much damage is caused to eyes.

In patients with severe visual loss LOW VISUAL AIDS can be prescribed for improving the quality of vision enabling him/her to carry on their daily routine.
