When you come to Insight Eye Care, you’ll meet with an optometrist who can screen you for macular degeneration. We check for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) during your routine eye exam. We’ll examine your retina and ask you to look at a grid of lines to determine whether your vision has been affected. If we suspect you have AMD, we can also run additional tests to be certain.
Macular degeneration causes you to lose the center of your field of vision. This condition frequently affects people as they get older. It involves the deterioration of the retina’s central portion, which sends images from the eye to the brain.
Symptoms include a gradual or sudden change in your vision quality, blurry areas in your vision and possible changes in your color perception. You may also notice that straight lines look distorted.
