Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration Treatment

At Advanced Eyecare we offer treatment for macular degeneration Las Vegas. Macular degeneration is a medical condition that happens because of damage to the retina of the eye. It usually happens to older individuals over the age of 50. It can cause a loss of vision making it difficult and sometimes impossible to see the world around and recognize people and places.

Forms of Degeneration

There are two main types of macular degeneration and both are characterized differently. The two types are:

Wet Form: The wet form of macular degeneration is when there is a growth of abnormal blood vessels underneath the macula. The blood vessels leave blood and other fluids into the retina which then causes a distorted vision. It can make strait lines appear wavy and can even cause bling spots or loss of ventral vision. The blood vessels can eventually scar which can lead to a permanent loss of vision.
Dry for: Dry form of macular degeneration is different because instead if abnormal blood vessels, there are yellow deposits in the macula. These deposits, if minimal, don’t always cause changes or damages to vision. But as they increase and grow in size, they can lead to distorted vision as well as diminished vision. It can become difficult to read and can eventually leave to central vision loss. In either case, you may need to seek macular degeneration treatments. Contact Advanced Eyecare of Las Vegas today.
