Macular degeneration can show up with different symptoms in different people. In its early stages, it may cause nothing more than preventing the "perfect 20/20" vision that you had when younger. Even as it may progress, sometimes only one eye loses vision for several years before the other eye is affected.
People develop AMD as a part of the body's natural aging process. The reason why it develops is unknown. UltraViolet light is probably related, in the same manner as our skin is damaged over the course of our lives. Fortunately, AMD alone does NOT result in total blindness. Patients can be profoundly affected by AMD, even preventing the ability to read or sew, but they can ambulate easily due to their peripheral vision being completely intact. In many mild cases, its impact on your vision can be minimal.
Although no one treatment has been proven consistently effective, we now know that a certain vitamin mixture can slow the progression of the milder, "dry" form of AMD. Please talk to us, or CLICK HERE, if you'd like to know more.
