Australian Retinitis Pigmentosa and Retinal Degeneration
Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is the name given to a group of eye diseases often characterised by night blindness and the gradual loss of peripheral vision. RP causes visual field loss, and may lead to eventual blindness, by affecting the light sensitive photoreceptors in the retina. A genetic and degenerative disease affecting over four million people world wide and thousands of Australians, RP is a common form of retinal degeneration (RD). Related conditions include Macular Degeneration, Usher Syndrome, Choroideremia, Leber's Amaurosis and Retinoschisis. Information for people interested in retinal degeneration is abundant on the internet. Explore my site to discover some of the more relevant and useful RD resources.

Definition Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a progressive disease of the retina wherein the light-sensing cells in the central area of vision (the macula) stop working and eventually die. The disease is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, and it is most common in people who are age sixty and over. Other less common types of macular degeneration, which are hereditary and can affect younger people, are Best's disease, Stargardt's disease, and Sorsby's disease. Collectively, these types are called juvenile macular degeneration. For definitions of each, see the MD Support Glossary with accompanying links. Other diseases of the retina and extreme myopia (near-sightedness) can also result in degeneration of the macula. These conditions are not to be confused with ARMD, but the end results are usually the same. For more information about them, see "Eye Diseases and Conditions" on this site.

Macular Degeneration
Overview Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a degenerative condition of the macula (the central retina It is the most common cause of vision loss in the United States in those 50 or older, and its prevalence increases with age. AMD is caused by hardening of the arteries that nourish the retina. This deprives the sensitive retinal tissue of oxygen and nutrients that it needs to function and thrive. As a result, the central vision deteriorates. This example demonstrates what a patient with advanced macular degeneration sees. Macular degeneration varies widely in severity. In the worst cases, it causes a complete loss of central vision, making reading or driving impossible. For others, it may only cause slight distortion. Fortunately, macular degeneration does not cause total blindness since it does not affect the peripheral vision. What is the difference between wet and dry macular degeneration?

47. Enviro : Med
Offers antioxidant formula designed by a Doctor of Ophthalmology for macular degeneration.
Dr. White Explains Anti-Oxidants and Macular Degeneration "Anti-Oxidants is a class of substances, organic in nature. Vitamins C and E are in this category. Also Vitamin A, converted from beta-carotene, and selenium fall into this group. The pigmentation of fruits and vegetables is from Carotenoids and as anti-oxidants are believed preventive against stroke, cancer and heart related disease.
Inside the body antioxidants protect against particles called free radicals. Typically an oxygen molecule, a free radical searches for a molecule with which it can combine or 'oxidize'. The molecules that free radicals attack are cells within the body organs. Cancer and Macular Degeneration is a common result of cellular breakdown.
Anti-Oxidants act to combine with these free radicals before they have a chance to cause damage."
The Ocu-ForteTM was developed in Dr. White's detox clinic since 1985 and improved upon to the point of this product's capability today. Research has included intraocular photos of patients with Macular Degeneration . This and continuing global research indicates that antioxidants shows given this formula a definate slowing or arrest of the Macular Degenerative process.Major eye centers in this country have now accepted the fact that antioxidant supplements do have a useful place in treating this disease .The major problem is they know very little about antioxidants. . They only use small doses of vitamins and do not understand the poweful formulation and synergism of total combinations of antioxidants,vitamins,minerals, and phytonutrients.

Angeles Vision Clinic The web site has detailed information on many other eye conditions. Please feel free to visit our Home Page or check out other eye conditions on our Eye Conditions page WHAT IS MACULAR DEGENERATION AND ITS TREATMENT OPTIONS? What Is Macular Degeneration? Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is the most common cause of irreversible vision loss in Americans over the age of 60. It is estimated that 10 million Americans will experience this age-related visual impairment during their retirement years. Macular degeneration is a disorder of the retina, the light-sensitive inner lining of the back of the eye. The macula is a small, central portion of the retina which is necessary for sharp, "straight ahead" vision needed for reading, driving a car or recognizing faces. There are a number of abnormalities associated with the term "age-related macular degeneration." They range from mild changes with no decrease in vision to abnormalities severe enough to result in the loss of all "straight ahead" vision. Macular degeneration does not cause total blindness because the remaining and undamaged parts of the retina around the macula continue to provide "side" vision. There are two main types of macular degeneration, "dry" and "wet," both are discussed in the next section.

Macular degeneration Retina Alternative names Return to top Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD or AMD); Senile macular degeneration (SMD) Definition Return to top Macular degeneration is a disorder that affects the macula (the central part of the retina of the eye) causing decreased visual acuity and possible loss of central vision. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top The macula is the part of the retina that allows the eye to see fine details at the center of the field of vision. Degeneration results from a partial breakdown of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). The RPE is the insulating layer between the retina and the choroid (the layer of blood vessels behind the retina). The RPE acts as a selective filter to determine what nutrients reach the retina from the choroid. Many components of blood are harmful to the retina and are kept away from the retina by normal RPE. Breakdown of the RPE interferes with the metabolism of the retina, causing thinning of the retina (the "dry" phase of macular degeneration). These harmful elements may also promote new blood vessel formation and fluid leakage (the "wet" phase of macular degeneration).

  • Macular degeneration is a degenerative disease of the retina that causes progressive loss of central vision. Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries and affects one in three people over the age of 85. Glaucoma is a group of diseases characterized by optic nerve injury with resultant visual loss. Glaucoma is prevalent in all populations and can lead to blindness, if not diagnosed and treated in a timely manner. Glaucoma is more common in older individuals and in certain ethnic groups.

Macular Degeneration
By Judith Lee and Gretchyn Bailey
reviewed by Dr. Vance Thompson AMD: News FAQ Although many people are not aware of it, macular degeneration, often called AMD or ARMD (for age-related macular degeneration), is the leading cause of blindness in the world. The eye-health organization Prevent Blindness America estimates that 13 million Americans have evidence of macular degeneration. The disease breaks down the macula, the light-sensitive part of the retina responsible for the sharp, direct vision needed to read or drive. Central vision, especially, is affected. Macular degeneration is diagnosed as either dry (atrophic) or wet (exudative). The dry form is more common than the wet, with about 90% of AMD patients diagnosed with dry AMD. The wet form of the disease usually leads to more serious vision loss.
