The Retina Is Responsible For The Sensation Of Vision The retina is the thin, delicate lining of the inside back wall of the eye. The retina is responsible for the sensation of vision. Similar to the film of a camera, it captures focused images and sends the information via the optic nerve to the brain which processes the information. Without the retina, you would not see. The center of the retina, the macula, is used for detailed work and reading. The surrounding portion of the retina is responsible for peripheral vision. Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration, also known as age-related macular
degeneration (ARMD), is a deterioration of the macula that results in impaired central vision. ARMD is the number one cause of blindness in those over age 55. Factors that increase the chance of having macular degeneration include age, fair complexion, female gender, smoking and heart disease. Dry ARMD is the most common type of macular degeneration. Visual deterioration is usually milder in this form. Wet ARMD affects 10 per cent of all individuals with macular degeneration and is more severe. In wet ARMD, blood vessels leak fluid and blood into the retina, causing loss of vision.

Some of the clinical retinal signs of dry AMD include drusen of the posterior pole, granular clumping and disorganization of the RPE in the macular area, macular RPE hyperplasia and degeneration of the outer retinal layers with circumscribed areas of geographic atrophy of the RPE. Some of the clinical retinal signs associated with wet AMD include hard and soft drusen, subretinal thickening secondary to classic or occult choroidal neovascularization (producing a grayish-green subretinal hue), subretinal, intraretinal or vitreous hemorrhage, subretinal and intraretinal exudation with serosanguinous fluid accumulation and fibrovascular scar formation (disciform scarring). PATHOPHYSIOLOGY

Begin managing patients with potential or diagnosed AMD by recognizing the associated risk factors and providing patient education. The disease is more common in individuals who have a family history of AMD, are of light complexion, in those who have a cardiovascular history, history of previous lung infection, hyperopia or decreased hand grip strength. It is typically more progressive in males. Smoking is a significant risk factor. The management of patients with dry AMD begins with biannual eye examination, with dilated funduscopy. Home therapy, aimed at early detection, using a home Amsler grid may work to monitor the stability of suspicious or involved maculae. The elimination of potentially harmful ultraviolet light using UV coatings on spectacles and sunglasses may also reduce the risk of photochemical /oxidative damage to the retina for all patients.

AMD is the leading cause of blindness Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness. It is just one form of macular disease, which affects the eye's retina. An estimated 500,000 people in the UK suffer from AMD, 40% of these are over the age of 75. What is AMD?
AMD is the most common form of macular disease, which affects the central part of the retina. It is an age-related process and usually develops after a person reaches 50 years. It generally involves both eyes, although they may not be affected at the same time or to the same degree. Some 90% of these cases are dry AMD which cannot be treated but 10% are wet ADM. Dry AMD means visual cells simply stop to function. Wet AMD is by far the most aggressive form of the disease. The condition is caused by the growth of new blood vessels under the centre of the retina. These can leak fluid, causing scar tissue to form and destroying central vision in a period of between two months and three years.

If you are someone or someone you love is suffering from macular degeneration, then you are looking for some answers. What exactly is macular degeneration? Is there a macular degeneration cure? What kind of treatments are available? When my husband got diagnosed with macular degeneration, we had all these questions. We had trouble finding some serious answers on the matter so we did a lot of research. We set up Macular Degeneration Treatment Information as a reliable informational source on macular degeneration. What Is Macular Degeneration?
Macular degeneration is an eye condition in which one often experiences a loss of central vision. It occurs because the macula is damaged. The macula is a tender area located in the retina which is responsible for central vision. Mostly commonly seen in people over the age of 60, macular degeneration can also affect people as young as 40. In people over 60 years old, macular degeneration is the most common cause of vision loss. As people age, the chances of getting the disease increase.

You are in: Eye and Vision Macular Degeneration Overview Macular degeneration (MD) is a disorder that includes a variety of eye diseases that affect your central vision. Central vision is what you see directly in front of you rather than what you see at the edge (or periphery) of your vision. The most common disease is age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of legal blindness in people older than 55 years in the United States. The disease affects more than 10 million Americans, including 23% of Americans older than 90 years. Because overall life expectancy continues to increase, age-related macular degeneration has become a major public health problem.

Eye Disorders
Macular Degeneration
Macular Degeneration is a process of wear and tear in the macula, that part of the eye responsible for sharp, central vision and color. It is the leading cause of vision loss among people over the age of 65. Macular degeneration usually affects both eyes and can be either gradual or abrupt. Side vision is unaffected. Causes: The thin, fragile macula within the center of the retina is made up of several layers. The light-sensing cells produce sharp, central vision while two underlying layers nourish and help remove waste from these cells. It is never caused by over using the eyes. Just as some plants are easily damaged if they recieve too much sun or water, macular degeneration is similar in some ways. Light may play a role in the development of the "dry" type in which cell waste isn't easily digested, builds up, and swelling occurs. It can be a forerunner of "wet" macular degeneration. The "wet" type may cause rapid, severe vision loss. It usually occurs when abnormal, new blood vessels grow for unknown reasons, leaking fluid and blood. The build-up of fluid causes the macula to bulge, distorting vision. Treatment: Laser treatment for the "wet" type uses a highly focused beam of light to seal tiny, leaking blood vessels and dry up excess fluid. Unfortunately, it is not useful for treating dry macular degeneration.

Vitamin A: A Role in Macular Degeneration and Fractures
Q: A:
First, let me explain macular degeneration for our readers who aren't familiar with the condition. The macula is a very sensitive area located in the center of the retina. The retina, of course, is the tissue at the back of the eye that converts the light and images we see into electrical impulses and sends these nerve signals to the brain, where we interpret them visually. Macular degeneration refers to the deterioration of the macula, which can lead to vision loss. Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) occurs in two forms: dry and wet. Dry ARMD occurs when the light-sensitive cells in the macula slowly break down, gradually blurring central vision in the affected eye. As dry ARMD gets worse, you may see a blurred spot in the center of your vision. Over time, as less of the macula functions, central vision in the affected eye can be lost gradually. You may notice you have difficulty recognizing faces, or need more light for reading and other tasks. Dry ARMD generally affects both eyes, but vision can be lost in one eye while the other eye seems unaffected. One of the most common early signs of dry ARMD is drusen. Drusen are yellow deposits under the retina. They often are found in people over age 60. Your eye care professional can detect drusen during a comprehensive dilated eye exam.

What is age-related macular degeneration?
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that blurs the sharp, central vision you need for "straight-ahead" activities such as reading, sewing, and driving. AMD affects the macula, the part of the eye that allows you to see fine detail. ( See diagram below .) AMD causes no pain. In some cases, AMD advances so slowly that people notice little change in their visual acuity . In others, the disease progresses faster and may lead to a loss of vision in both eyes. AMD is a leading cause of vision loss in Americans 60 years of age and older. Where is the macula? The macula is a small, highly sensitive area located in the center of the retina , the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. The retina instantly converts light, or an image, into electrical impulses. The retina then sends these impulses, or nerve signals, to the brain where they are interpreted as an image. Are there different forms of AMD?

Complex Visual Hallucinations and Macular Degeneration by Erik A. Steen Located in the center of the retina, the sensitive macula provides us with sight in the center of our field of vision. When we look directly at something, the macula allows us to see the fine details. This sharp, straight-ahead vision is necessary for driving, reading, recognizing faces, and doing close work, such as sewing. Macular degeneration is the impairment of this central macular area. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most common cause of vision loss in the Western world in the over 50 age group. It most commonly affects those of northern European descent and is uncommon in African-Americans and Hispanics. The prevalence increases with age. It affects about 15% of the population by age 55, and over 30% are affected by age 75 (Miller, 1992). In macular degeneration a layer beneath the retina, called the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), gradually wears out from its lifelong duties of disposing of retinal waste products. Eventually the capacity of the RPE layer to handle these metabolic products is overwhelmed and the RPE begins to degenerate (Miller, 1992). Other deep layers involved in development of macular degeneration are Bruch's membrane and the choroid layer. Additional factors that may hasten loss of the RPE layer, and the resulting degeneration of the central retina (macula) include hereditary factors, ultraviolet rays from sunlight, and blue iris color (more UV rays reach the retina in blue-eyed patients, probably because of the lower pigment density in the eye).

Can we stem this worldwide public health crisis?
Christopher E. Starr, MD; David R. Guyer, MD; Lawrence A. Yannuzzi, MD VOL 103 / NO 5 / MAY 1998 / POSTGRADUATE MEDICINE This is the third of four articles on failing vision Preview : With more than 200,000 new cases of exudative age-related macular degeneration occurring each year in the United States alone, early detection and treatment are of paramount importance. Physicians in all specialties, but particularly those in the front lines of primary care, play an important role in recognizing symptoms and basic ophthalmoscopic findings associated with this disease. Regular screening and patient education are crucial for improving detection, and referral to a retina specialist is essential if vision is to be saved. Drs Starr, Guyer, and Yannuzzi present the latest information. A ge-related macular degeneration is the most common cause of legal blindness among people over 60 years of age and represents a major worldwide public health crisis (1). Abnormalities associated with macular degeneration occur in about 8.5 million Americans over age 40 (2). The disease is frustrating because currently there are very few treatment options and no preventive therapy. Laser photocoagulation is the one treatment proven to be effective in clinical trials, but only a minority of patients with macular degeneration are good candidates.
Macular degeneration occurs as two distinct types, nonexudative and exudative, each representing a different stage of the same disease process. Nonexudative macular degeneration (also called "dry," atrophic, or nonneovascular macular degeneration) is the milder, more common form and carries a better prognosis than the exudative form. The hallmark of dry macular degeneration is small, round, white-yellow lesions in the macula, called drusen (figure 1).

Macular Degeneration Self-Test (Amsler Grid)
This very simple test can quickly tell you if you have visually significant disease in the macula
    Cover one eye. Stare at the center dot, through your reading glasses, if you have them. While concentrating at the central dot, notice the surrounding grid. ALL THE LINES SHOULD BE STRAIGHT If some of the lines are wavy and crooked, you may have macular degeneration . Figure 2, below, is an example of how this grid might appear to a patient with disease in the macular.
Unfortunately, if all the lines are straight, you still may have a mild form of macular degeneration; that is, a negative result on this test does not guarantee that your maculas are normal . The only way to find out if your maculas are normal is by having a complete eye exam , through dilated pupils. Great News!!! Finally there appears to be solid evidence that antioxidant vitamins can be beneficial in the prevention of the severe forms of macular degeneration (Sorry, they do NOT appear to be beneficial as a method of treatment

1 888 357-0477 or 1 702 515-1084 In the spring of 1971, I was told that I would go blind. The doctor that identified the genetic defect declared he hoped going blind would have a maturing affect. The news that I was legally blind at that time, aged me way beyond my twenty five years. The diagnosis of retinitis pigmentosa, complicated by macular degeneration, usually affecting older people, aged me even further. I was told that I had the eyes of someone in their 80's. Both conditions typically steal precious sight. Conventional medicine had nothing, not even hope to offer. Since then and for over twenty-five years, I have been on a collision course with conventional medical beliefs. Repeatedly told that there was nothing to do for my own impending blindness, or for the predicted loss of my children's sight, I refused to give up. Since conventional medicine had nothing to offer, I turned to the alternative health community. My perceived curse turned into a gift. A new world of hope and help opened when I entered the alternative health care field. In 1979, I earned my Ph.D. in Holistic Health Science from Columbia Pacific University for my work in alternative eye health care. Contrary to conventional medical beliefs, my sight improved. Because so many people are in need, and due to my own success, I've had the privilege to teach these methods all over the world.

What is macular degeneration?
Macular degeneration is the most common cause of severe vision loss in Canada, especially among the elderly. It causes 1 in 3 cases of reported vision loss. The most common form of the disease occurs in people over age 55 and is called “age-related macular degeneration.” At the back of the eye there is a thin layer of light-sensitive tissue called the retina. The eye focuses light onto a small spot about the size of a pea called the macula. The macula processes the details in the central part of our vision, and is responsible for us being able to see the finest details, colours and to function in daylight. If the macula is diseased for any reason, the retina becomes like a camera with a spot on the film in the centre of the picture. This results in blurry central vision and loss of details.

... Drug Treatment Shows Promise Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of new adult blindness in the United States. An eye disease that mostly affects the elderly, macular degeneration is becoming a serious public health concern as our population grows older and lives longer. Unfortunately, current treatments help relatively few people. The Macular Degeneration Center at the Casey Eye Institute links cutting-edge research with clinical practice. Because of the urgent need to better understand the causes of AMD and offer the most effective treatment possible under one roof, the Macular Degeneration Center was formed in 1995 at the Casey Eye Institute. It is one of the few such centers in the United States, drawing patients from throughout the Western region. Made up of clinicians, basic scientists and support staff, the center pioneers new methods of diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Our full spectrum of care includes a wide range of low vision rehabilitation, support services and community outreach programs.
