Macular degeneration is a disease caused by damage or breakdown of the macula, the small part of the eye’s retina that is responsible for our central vision. If left untreated, macular degeneration can eventually destroy central (non-peripheral) vision.
At Mount Greenwood Eye Professionals, our doctors treat macular degeneration. The course of treatment is dependent on the patient’s health history and the type and severity of the disease. Our doctors utilize numerous techniques to treat macular degeneration including low vision aids, eye medications, laser treatments, and nutritional supplements.
