Q&A with Dr. Steven Rosen
Dr. Rosen Answers Your Eyecare Questions
What is macular degeneration (AMD)?
The macula is the part of the retina responsible for central vision, and not only does it handle central vision, it is the HD (High Definition) part of the retina. We need it to read, recognize faces, and discern fine details. Additionally, it gives us the best color vision. Unfortunately, the macula is susceptible to degenerative processes as we age, and all of these wonderful and important features can be compromised. There are two forms of macular degeneration: "Dry" macular degeneration and "Wet" macular degeneration. The Dry form is the more common, and is not usually too serious in the early stages. However, it can advance and it can advance to the Wet form, which is more serious. Macular degeneration can be hereditary, but all of us are at risk. There are things we can do to avoid getting macular degeneration. Avoiding bright sunlight, Ultra-violet (UV) light, and high energy blue light are important and we always recommend high quality sunglasses. Proper nutrition and weight control can also help us avoid AMD. If signs of AMD present themselves, we care for our patients by providing genetic testing to find out how diligent we need to be in watching for advancement, and to find out what are the best vitamins might be helpful. If advancement to the Wet form occurs, there are new treatments available to limit damage.
