Age-Related Macular Degeneration Screening

At SeeRite eye clinic, we are firm believers of education and prevention. As such, we carry the latest technology in diagnostic equipment, including Optical Coherence Tomography which analyzes the 9 layers of your retina and can detect Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) before symptoms begin.

People over 60 years old are more prone to AMD, particularly if they have a family history, light skin, blue eyes, or have a history of smoking.

AMD causes damage to the recycling system of the seeing cells of the eye called photoreceptors. This causes a buildup of material in the back of the eye which can distort the layers of our retina, and therefore, our vision. In some cases, new blood vessels grow below and/or into the retina and can break, causing leakage; this results in the need for injections to the eye to promote healing.

There are many nutritional recommendations in the maintenance of healthy retinal cells and prevention of macular degeneration.
