04 Feb Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
February is recognized as Low Vision Awareness Month to bring awareness to conditions that are not often curable, but in some cases preventable. One of those conditions is AMD or Age-Related Macular Degeneration. AMD cannot be reversed, but it can be reduced and often managed. The National Eye Institute has shared this infographic showing some of the risk factors that contribute to AMD and some of things we can all do as we age to reduce our risks. AMD is best managed when caught early. A comprehensive eye exam by one of the independent eye doctors inside Europtics is one way to give you and your loved ones peace of mind.
