Woman with Macular Degeneration

What is Macular Degeneration?

Macular degeneration is an incurable condition that affects the central part of your visual field. The edges or peripherals of your vision are unaffected.

 

Regular eye examinations are important as health checks like our OCT scan can help us  detect early signs. 

 

Spotting Macular Degeneration early can allow you to make changes in lifestyle which could help slow down how much vision goes away. We also offer various aids which can help you get the most out of the vision you have.
