Macular Degeneration

Get your macula checked.
Early detection . . . saves sight

At Eyes & Vision we now have OCT – the latest instrumentation in detecting Macular Degeneration. OCT actually shows us the retina in section and we can see drusen and retinal pigment epithelium.

Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness and severe vision loss in Australia.

It affects one in seven people over the age of 50, and one in three over the age of 75. Click here to learn more.

The risks are higher for smokers and with sun exposure, and three times as high if you have a family history of it.

There is no cure for Macular Degeneration. There are now treatments that can slow down, stop or reverse its progression, depending on the stage and type of the disease.

The earlier you seek treatment the more vision you are likely to retain. Same day treatment is ideal.
