Macular degeneration is a condition in which the macula, the area of the retina that focuses your center of vision and allows you to see small details, deteriorates. The causes of this condition are unknown, but it often develops in older people as the result of the natural aging process. When the macula breaks down, a variety of symptoms may be present. Symptoms vary from person to person and can include:
- Blurred or fuzzy vision
- Distorted vision in which straight lines appear wavy
- Difficulty seeing – or inability to see – in dim light
- Dark or ”blind spots” directly ahead
The best way to detect macular degeneration is through a comprehensive eye exam, which patients throughout Cincinnati, OH, can receive from Apex Eye. If any defects in your central vision are detected, our team does include a retina specialist. His specialized training provides the unsurpassed ability to thoroughly diagnose and treat macular degeneration and other diseases of the retina. In addition to the most effective therapies currently available, Apex Eye’s retina team is engaged in clinical trials that give our patients access to cutting edge treatments for macular degeneration.
