EARLY RECOGNITION OF MACULAR DEGENERATION
The macula is the part of the eyes that is mainly used to see. Without it, it would be impossible to carry out daily activities like; reading, driving or recognizing faces or colors. Macular degeneration is a disease that disrupts the structure of the macula, causing loss of function and leading to loss of vision. Patients with macular degeneration disease can ultimately lose their central vision.
Royal Optix services use the latest technology during our eye health test and examination to get to the root of your visual problems. If you think you may have macular degeneration, visit your Royal Optix center for proper diagnosis and treatment.
THE BEST TOOLS FOR THE DIAGNOSIS OF MACULAR DEGENERATION
Macular degeneration is common among patients who are above 60 years of age. It is categorized into two types: dry macular degeneration and wet macular degeneration. The dry macular degeneration occurs when deposits and extra pigment cluster at the center of the retina. Whereas the wet macular degeneration develops when leaky blood vessels grow underneath the retina. In both types of macular degeneration, blurry and distorted vision is the main symptoms.
During your eye test and examination with a Royal Optix optometrist, various tools and technologies like retinal imaging are used to examine your macular and to make recommendations for appropriate treatments and follow-up tests as the need arises.
