Macular Degeneration – We can Help

We can help patients with AMD to maximize usable vision - to keep doing the things they love.

Macular degeneration occurs when the macula—the central portion of the retina—begins to wear down, causing central vision loss.

People who suffer from macular degeneration tend to lose their "straight ahead" vision, making it difficult to read, drive, and recognize faces.

While there is no cure for macular degeneration as of yet, there are certain treatments that can slow its progression—as well as low vision aids that can improve the quality of life for a person living with impaired vision.

At Hartland Eye Care, we offer several low vision aids and devices that can help patients with macular degeneration function independently.

A low vision consultation will determine your degree of vision loss.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with macular degeneration, we can help!
