Age-Related Macular Degeneration:
Age-related macular degeneration, often called AMD is the leading cause of vision loss among Americans age 65 and older. Because this group makes up an increasingly larger percentage of the population, vision loss from macular degeneration is a growing problem. Preventative treatment is your best defense when it comes to AMD. Recent research shows that certain vitamins and minerals may help prevent or slow the progression of macular degeneration. Annual comprehensive eye health exams are essential for early diagnosis and treatment. Here at Dumont Eye Care we use the most advanced technology to evaluate the health of your eyes and are experts at prevention counseling, diagnosing and managing the treatment of AMD.
