February Is Macular Degeneration Awareness Month

Dr. Katz Examining and Eye

Dr. Randy Katz, Florida Eye’s retina/vitreous specialist 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. “This is 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.”

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in adults 65 years and older, currently affecting more than 15 million Americans, with 200,000 new cases diagnosed each year, according to AMD.org.

One of the first signs of macular degeneration can be wavy, broken or distorted lines OR a blurred or missing area of vision. The Amsler Grid can help you spot these early. Early detection of wet AMD is critical because laser treatment, when indicated, is most successful when performed before damage occurs. Since dry AMD can lead to development of wet AMD, most patients should use the Amsler Grid.
