Macular Degeneration Care in Denton, TX
Macular degeneration is a leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over the age of 60. This condition causes part of the retina, called the macula, to deteriorate over time. Your macula is what allows you to read, view far away signs/objects, and controls your central vision.
Macular degeneration has no cure, and early diagnosis is critical to mitigate its symptoms. Our board-certified ophthalmologists at Advanced Eye Care Center can diagnose, treat, and manage this degenerative eye disease.
One of the first, most common signs of this eye disease is distortion of straight lines. Things that once appeared straight across may begin to look wavy. Other common signs of macular degeneration may include:
- Blurry vision in one or both eyes
- A need for brighter light
- Difficult adapting to low lights
- Decreased intensity of color vision
- Difficulty recognizing faces
- The center of your vision seems dark
