CONTENT LIST What is the macula? How does AMD damage vision? Who is at risk for AMD? What are the symptoms of AMD? ... What can you do if you have already lost vision to AMD? Information For Patients This pamphlet is designed to help people with age-related macular degeneration and their families better understand the disease. It describes the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of age-related macular degeneration. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that affects your central vision. It is a common cause of vision loss among people over age of 60. Because only the center of your vision is usually affected, people rarely go blind from the disease. However, AMD can sometimes make it difficult to read, drive, or perform other daily activities that require fine, central vision.
What is the macula? The macula is in the center of the retina, the light-sensitive layer of tissue at the back of the eye. As you read, light is focused onto your macula. There, millions of cells change the light into nerve signals that tell the brain what you are seeing. This is called your central vision.

Macular Degeneration Research AHAF's Macular Degeneration Research program was established in 1997 to fund research on and educate the public about macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is a common eye disease that causes deterioration of the macula, the central area of the retina, the paper-thin tissue at the back of the eye where light-sensitive cells send visual signals to the brain. Sharp, clear, 'straight ahead' vision is processed by the macula. Damage to the macula results in the development of blind spots and blurred or distorted vision. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of blindness and visual impairment in the United States and for people over age 65 it is the leading cause of legal blindness. The 'About Macular Degeneration' section has a wealth of information including the following:

  • What is macular degeneration? Macular degeneration is the physical disturbance of the center of the retina called the macula. The macula, which is about the size of the capital letter "O" in this sentence, is the part of the retina which is capable of our most acute and detailed vision. We use the macula for reading, driving, recognizing faces, watching television, and fine work. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of legal blindness in people over age 55. (Legal blindness means that a person can see 20/200 or less with eyeglasses.) Even with a loss of central vision, however, color vision and peripheral vision may remain clear. Vision loss usually occurs gradually and typically affects both eyes at different rates.

This partnership combines the strength of The Foundation’s research mission to find treatments and cures for macular degeneration with MDI’s mission to help people lead independent and rewarding lives. In addition to funding research, The Foundation produces comprehensive patient education materials for macular degeneration and related diseases. With our complementary strengths, MDI and The Foundation can better serve its constituents. The new partnership with The Foundation will allow MDI to provide its constituents with up-to-the-minute research information without diverting us from our primary mission to help patients with macular degeneration live independent and productive lives.

    Macular Degeneration
    Overview Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a degenerative condition of the macula (the central retina It is the most common cause of vision loss in the United States in those 50 or older, and its prevalence increases with age. AMD is caused by hardening of the arteries that nourish the retina. This deprives the sensitive retinal tissue of oxygen and nutrients that it needs to function and thrive. As a result, the central vision deteriorates. This example demonstrates what a patient with advanced macular degeneration sees. Macular degeneration varies widely in severity. In the worst cases, it causes a complete loss of central vision, making reading or driving impossible. For others, it may only cause slight distortion. Fortunately, macular degeneration does not cause total blindness since it does not affect the peripheral vision. What is the difference between wet and dry macular degeneration?

    Helping patients with the latest on low vision, whether from injury, aging, glaucoma, macular degeneration, albinism, retinitus pigmentosa, diabetes or other, specialty lenses or contacts may help.
    What is Low Vision?
    Low Vision is a condition in which a person has some vision but it is limited.   This condition may interfere with daily pastimes such as reading and watching television.  People with low vision generally have some remaining vision with reduced sharpness, narrowed vision, haziness or blind areas.
    Who has Low Vision?
    About one out of every 6 Americans has low vision.  It can affect people of all ages.
    What causes Low Vision?
    Low vision is often the result of an injury, birth defect, the aging process, disease or condition such as ocular albinism, retinitis pigmentosa, or stargardts macular dystrophy.  If the condition develops later in life, it is usually caused by glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration or diabetes.
    Can people with Low Vision be helped?
    Yes!  Today many new optical devices and systems can help Low Vision patients see better.  However the patient must be motivated to see better and show a willingness to work toward that goal.
    Company Profile
    Low Vision Associates was founded in 1986 to help people with vision problems.  In that time, we have assisted thousands of patients.  Even many patients who were told by other doctors that "they could do nothing more to help them" have been helped here. Low Vision Associates specializes in fitting the latest eyeglass and contact lenses including telescopic and microscopic lenses, filtered lenses, high powered and prismatic lenses which may be helpful for many conditions.
