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.
What living with advanced AMD looks like…
That’s why it is important to detect AMD at subclinical level and take action to preserve you sight before irreversible vision loss occurs. This video, by The Macular Society, demonstrates why it’s important to take action to protect your sight today. Learn more at: www.macularsociety.org/sightmatters.
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 macular degeneration and I'm glad we caught it early, because now we can do something about it.
