How Can a San Jose Ophthalmologist Help with Macular Degeneration?

Ophthalmologists are specialists in the treatment of eye disease. If you have been having trouble with your vision, either a gradual decline or a sudden loss, it’s important you work with an ophthalmologist. You can seek a referral from your optometrist or you can simply give your San Jose ophthalmologist a call today.

What Is AMD, or Macular Degeneration?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration, also called AMD or ARMD, is a breakdown of the macula. This is the small, central part of the retina, which controls the sharpness of your vision – called visual acuity. The macula enables us to do fine-tuned seeing, such as reading, using a computer, recognizing faces and so on. It is the leading cause of vision loss in the United States.

Many causes of AMD are theorized, including genetics, high blood pressure and oxygen deprivation in the eye. Eating a healthy diet, not smoking, maintaining normal blood pressure and healthy weight, and exercising regularly can all help prevent it.

Wet Versus Dry Macular Degeneration

Dry AMD results from the thinning of the macula and a buildup of pigments on it, or both. It is the most common form and leads to slow vision loss. Wet AMD is more serious, and relates to the development of new blood vessels in the area, which then burst and causes more sudden vision loss. The dry form usually becomes wet form over time, so both types can lead to blindness.

Treatment of AMD

There are no known cures for AMD, but nutritional changes and frequent vision monitoring and prescription of low-vision devices can help reduce the impact of AMD on your life.
