As we age, we may encounter various health issues, including those that affect our vision. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a condition that, until recently, posed significant challenges for the elderly, impacting their ability to read, drive, and recognize the faces of their loved ones.
Fortunately, our state-of-the-art OCT technology allows us to detect AMD at an early stage, before significant vision loss occurs. Combined with innovative drugs, we can effectively halt the progression of AMD.
Through a digital 3D retinal image of the macula, we obtain a permanent record that can be compared to images from previous and future visits. This enables us to easily identify subtle changes in the macula, which may be difficult to detect through written descriptions alone. A picture provides a highly detailed and comprehensive record. As a result, we strongly recommend an OCT Scan for all patients at risk of macular degeneration.
With the aid of our OCT technology, we can proactively monitor and manage AMD, preserving your vision and allowing you to continue enjoying the visual experiences that bring joy to your life.
