Macular degeneration is a serious eye disease that affects many adults in the United States today. At Lens Lab Express, we provide patients with the best in macular degeneration treatment in Sunnyside NY. If we can detect macular degeneration early enough, we may be able to save the eyesight before it gets worse. Age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, is the number one cause of vision loss in the United States today. It can be caused by a variety of different factors. These include age, diet, genetics, or even exposure to bright sunlight.
Macular degeneration happens when the macula, the part of the retina that lies in back of the eye, becomes damaged. The macula is responsible for making sure our central vision stays sharp. Arteries that nourish the retina can change as we grow older, causing a loss of vision. Blood vessels may leak, or abnormal blood vessels may grow and cause distortions in vision which can eventually lead to loss of vision. If you have experienced loss of vision or are having blurry vision, call our offices immediately to talk to us about macular degeneration treatment in Sunnyside NY.
