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.

Warning Sign: Poor Night Vision

The earliest warning sign of AMD is trouble seeing at night, caused by impaired dark adaptation.

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.
