February is Macular Degeneration/Low Vision Awareness Month
Did you know that Macular Degeneration is the most common cause of vision loss in individuals over 55?
That is why, although February is officially macular degeneration/low vision awareness month, Dr. Randy Katz, the Director of Retinal & Vitreous Services at Florida Eye, has always made it a point to discuss yearly eye exams as the key to preserving healthy eyesight.
"Many adults put off getting annual eye exams," Dr. Katz said. "These exams are the only way eye doctors can monitor for any changes in a patient’s vision, which can truly mean the difference between preserving sight and perhaps even losing it."
Florida Eye’s Dr. Joseph Nezgoda, also specializing in the surgical and medical treatment of the retina and vitreous, concurs, and adds, "Many people are not aware that they have macular degeneration until they have a noticeable vision problem or until it is detected during an eye examination. If detected early significant vision loss can be averted."
