Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration: example of the loss of central vision which a patient with macular degeneration may suffer

This photo provides an example of the loss of central vision which a patient with macular degeneration may suffer.

While glaucoma may affect patients of any age, Macular Degeneration is an age-related disease.  Most often this condition affects patients over the age of 60 years.  As with glaucoma, early detection of macular degeneration is essential.  Presently, there is no cure for macular degeneration.

Macular Degeneration Testing and Treatment

Once a patient loses sight to this disease, it may not be restored.  However, with early diagnosis, steps may be taken to prevent further damage.  Our office is proud to offer the services of Dr. Bruce Saran to patients diagnosed with macular degeneration.  (The photo to the left provides an example of the loss of central vision which a patient with macular degeneration may suffer.)
