Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration Care in Denton, TX

The leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over the age of 60 is called macular degeneration and it occurs when a part of the eye called the macula begins to deteriorate. This progressive condition has no cure, and early diagnosis is critical to mitigate its symptoms and manage it. Our board-certified ophthalmologists at Advanced Eye Care Center can help diagnose, treat, and manage this degenerative eye disease.

Macular Degeneration Symptoms

As macular degeneration develops, the person’s eyesight slowly begins to deteriorate as the central part of the retina becomes damaged. Fortunately, this can be detected at routine eye exams, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up-to-date with annual exams with an ophthalmologist, particularly if you’re an older adult. If you have a family history of eye disease you should schedule an eye exam as soon as possible, particularly if you are 60+ years old.

The first signs of this eye disease that most people will notice is when straight lines start to appear distorted. Other common signs of macular degeneration may include:

  • Blurry central vision in either or both eyes
  • The need for brighter light
  • Difficult adapting to low light
  • Decreased intensity of color vision
  • Increased blurry vision
  • Difficulty recognizing faces
  • The center of your vision seems dark
