What is age-related macular degeneration?

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disorder that causes changes to the center of the retina called the macula. There are two types of AMD: dry and wet. Both typically affect patients who are 50 years of age or older. The macula is responsible for detailed central vision. Once this area becomes damaged, it can cause severe vision loss. The goal is to catch AMD as early as possible to preserve vision. Call Ticho Eye Associates in Chicago Ridge, IL, Tinley Park, IL, or Munster, IN to book an appointment.

Although age-related macular degeneration can't be cured, it can be slowed and managed with different therapies.
