  • What is macular degeneration? Macular degeneration is the physical disturbance of the center of the retina called the macula. The macula, which is about the size of the capital letter "O" in this sentence, is the part of the retina which is capable of our most acute and detailed vision. We use the macula for reading, driving, recognizing faces, watching television, and fine work. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of legal blindness in people over age 55. (Legal blindness means that a person can see 20/200 or less with eyeglasses.) Even with a loss of central vision, however, color vision and peripheral vision may remain clear. Vision loss usually occurs gradually and typically affects both eyes at different rates.

How does AMD damage vision? Who is most likely to get AMD? What are the symptoms? ... What can you do to protect your vision? What is age-related macular degeneration (AMD)? AMD is a common eye disease associated with aging that gradually destroys sharp, central vision. Central vision is needed for seeing objects clearly and for common daily tasks such as reading and driving. In some people, AMD advances so slowly that it will have little effect on their vision as they age. But in others, the disease progresses faster and may lead to a loss of vision in one or both eyes. How does AMD damage vision?

    Adult Macular Degeneration Dr. David Seftel M.D. Adult macular degeneration is traditionally described as that form of the disease that affects individuals over the age of 55 years. However, we have recently discovered that a significant number of these individuals may have a major genetic component that contributes to the disease. What does macular degeneration do to your vision?
    Your retina contains an extraordinary photosensitive array of cells that line the back of your eye. The light falling onto these cells in the retina is transformed into electrical signals which are transmitted to the brain centers that process and interpret them. The most concentrated collection of photosensitive cells in your retina, including those that enable critical color and fine detail vision, are found in the Bulls-Eye center zone in an area called the macula.

    The Center for the Study of Macular Degeneration (CSMD) A biomedical research unit dedicated to advancing basic biomedical research into the cellular, molecular, and genetic factors that contribute to the human ocular diseases that are known as macular degeneration. A 10-year follow up of the incidence and progression of retinal drusen, retinal pigmentary abnormalities, and signs of late age-related maculopathy was reported on 2,764 people living in Beaver Dam, WI who participated in the Beaver Dam Eye Study. The study's findings indicated that large numbers of hard drusen predict the incidence of soft drusen and pigmentary abnormalities, and that the presence of the latter lesions significantly increases the risk for the development of geographic atrophy and exudative macular degeneration.
    (More Info)
    Recent strides in identifying the molecular composition of drusen have led to the conclusion that drusen are a by-product of chronic local inflammation in the aging eye. These findings suggest that those forms of AMD characterized by the accumulation of drusen could benefit from therapeutic approaches that are designed to attenuate the local inflammatory events that precede the development of the more advanced stages of AMD.
    (More Info)
    Studies of over 500 pairs of identical and fraternal twins by genetic epidemiologists in Britain and at the Georgia Prevention Institute in Augusta, Georgia have confirmed that there is a significant genetic component in AMD. The study showed that concordance in the development of AMD among twins was nearly 40% in identical twins and about 20% in fraternal twins. The study also showed that the most significant inherited feature is the presence of large numbers of drusen.

    Macular Degeneration General Information
    Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the United States and many European countries. The neovascular "wet" form of the disease is responsible for most (90%) severe loss of vision. There are approximately 200,000 new cases of wet macular degeneration in the United States each year. The average age of patients with the wet form of macular degeneration is the mid-70s. It rarely occurs before the age of 50. Wet macular degeneration is more common in whites, but occurs in all races. The wet form of macular degeneration is usually associated with aging, but other diseases which can cause wet macular degeneration include high myopia (being very nearsighted) and some intraocular infections like histoplasmosis.

    Helping patients with the latest on low vision, whether from injury, aging, glaucoma, macular degeneration, albinism, retinitus pigmentosa, diabetes or other, specialty lenses or contacts may help.
    What is Low Vision?
    Low Vision is a condition in which a person has some vision but it is limited.   This condition may interfere with daily pastimes such as reading and watching television.  People with low vision generally have some remaining vision with reduced sharpness, narrowed vision, haziness or blind areas.
    Who has Low Vision?
    About one out of every 6 Americans has low vision.  It can affect people of all ages.
    What causes Low Vision?
    Low vision is often the result of an injury, birth defect, the aging process, disease or condition such as ocular albinism, retinitis pigmentosa, or stargardts macular dystrophy.  If the condition develops later in life, it is usually caused by glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration or diabetes.
    Can people with Low Vision be helped?
    Yes!  Today many new optical devices and systems can help Low Vision patients see better.  However the patient must be motivated to see better and show a willingness to work toward that goal.
    Company Profile
    Low Vision Associates was founded in 1986 to help people with vision problems.  In that time, we have assisted thousands of patients.  Even many patients who were told by other doctors that "they could do nothing more to help them" have been helped here. Low Vision Associates specializes in fitting the latest eyeglass and contact lenses including telescopic and microscopic lenses, filtered lenses, high powered and prismatic lenses which may be helpful for many conditions.
