Macular Degeneration and Management
At Family Eyecare Associates, we provide the state of the art macular degeneration evaluation and treatment plans ahead of the standard of care set today.
If any of our doctors uncover any early changes that could be a sign of macular degeneration, we organize a macular degeneration work up. This includes a Macula Risk genetic risk assessment that gives our doctors your risk of progression toward the wet type of macular degeneration as well as which antioxidant supplements will provide the best protection based on genetic makeup. Also, we will run a high definition Optical Coherence Tomography test to see if any anatomy within the macula has been disrupted as a baseline. We will also analyze a computerized central visual field test to insure there has been no loss of visual function.
A baseline retinal photo of each eye will be acquired as well, so that we can uncover any changes as early as they arise and create an individualized treatment plan that will help to protect and preserve vision.
At Family Eyecare Associates, we will continue to provide state of the art Macular Degeneration care and cooperative management with our retinal specialty teams to allow the best preservation of your sight. Don't hesitate to contact us to schedule a Macular Degeneration workup today!
