The ABCs of AMD
Could you have undiagnosed AMD?
Are you at risk for a disease that may cause blindness? Nearly 1 in 8 adults over the age of 60 suffer from age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is a progressive disease that causes a part of your retina called the macula to slowly deteriorate as you get older. The macula is responsible for your central vision, which allows you to do things like read, watch TV, recognize faces, and drive.
AMD is the leading cause of adult blindness in developed countries. And the problem is only expected to grow as the population ages.
Detect AMD before it is too late
There are several types of tests that check for AMD. But most tests can only detect it in later stages. A new tool, called AdaptDx, identifies it much earlier by testing your night vision.
I have AMD, and I'm glad we caught it early, because now we can do something about it.
