macular degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in men and women over age 50.

Even though AMD is common among older people, it’s not as well known as cataracts — another eye disease that occurs more often with age. But while cataracts can be treated and “cured,” there’s no cure for AMD. Instead, people who have AMD require treatments that help slow the progression of the disease, which is why early detection is very important.

If you are concerned about macular degeneration, call Oakville Eye Clinic or schedule your appointment online.
