Growing old leads to a growing number of health problems, including those that challenge our ability to see. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that — until recently — robbed the elderly of the ability to read, drive and see the faces of their loved ones.
Thanks to our OCT, we can catch the disease before vision is lost. And with the aid of new drugs, AMD can be stopped in its tracks.
A digital 3D retinal image of the retina gives a permanent record which can be compared with other pictures taken on previous and future visits. This makes it much easier to detect small changes in the macula. A picture is a far more detailed record than could ever be described in written words. We highly recommend an OCT Scan for all patients at risk of macular degeneration.
