WITH EVERY PURCHASE, EYE LOVE GIVES TO END PREVENTABLE BLINDNESS

Hallucinations Associated with Macular Degeneration  An issue sometimes confronting people with advanced macular degeneration, glaucoma, or cataracts is visual hallucinations. These type of hallucinations are due to a condition called Charles Bonnet Syndrome. Charles Bonnet was a Swiss philosopher in the 18th century who recognized that his grandfather’s visual hallucinations were due to his eye disorder, not mental illness. The brain creates these hallucinations because the normal amount of visual stimulus coming from the eyes is greatly reduced. The images are often complex, including detailed patterns or even fully formed...

Inheriting Macular Degeneration As is the case with numerous health complications, macular degeneration may stem from either environmental or genetic causes, although its development is also known to occasionally derive from a mixture of both. Hereditary diseases occur when a defective gene is incorrectly applied to the standard functioning of the body. Since the flaw is genetic, it can be passed down from one generation to the next and is not transmitted like infections. The form of macular degeneration that is inherited is most routinely referred to as juvenile macular...

Later Stages of Macular Degeneration Later stages of macular degeneration are associated with central vision loss, which may mean eventual legal blindness. Eyesight generally continues to worsen and makes performing daily tasks very difficult. As a result, living with the condition may prove challenging, if not frustrating, for many. Fortunately, there are several coping mechanisms to aid people in the process. Eyewear People who use prescription eyewear should get their eyeglasses checked regularly to make sure their prescription is suitable for them. Magnifiers, also referred to as telescopic lenses in...

Macular Degeneration and the Effect of Age  What Is Macular Degeneration?  Macular Degeneration is a result of deterioration in the central portion of the retina. The back layer of the retina sends signals to the optic nerve, which transmits those images to the brain. The macula is located in the center part of the retina and allows the eye to focus on details. This part of the eye allows you to read, recognize facial expressions, drive, and see colors.  The aging process  Age-related macular degeneration or (AMD) is the most...

What you need to know Macular Degeneration Macular Degeneration causes more cases of severe vision loss than cataracts and glaucoma combined. It is incurable and the damage done before treatment or surgery cannot be reversed. It happens when the macula, the central portion of the retina, deteriorates. That deterioration means that images aren't processed correctly. People can have wavy or blurred vision. Eventually, central vision can be completely lost and the patient may even lose the ability to see the faces of loved ones. The most common type is age-related...

Macular degeneration currently has no medical treatment that reverses its effects, but there are ways you can slow it down during the early stages. For those for whom the disease has progressed into a later stage and who are dealing with low vision, there are some devices that can amplify remaining vision. Magnification All of the devices used now are based on some form of magnification. Since the central field of vision is lost with macular degeneration, magnification extends images outward from that lost central vision, making it possible to...

There are currently no treatments for macular degeneration that completely cure the disease or even stop its progression. Research in recent years has discovered various ways to slow inevitable vision loss and, although rarely, improve vision in particular areas. Several types of treatment include laser treatment, combinations of medicines, and injection. Concerns about injections for macular degeneration being painful should be eased since they are regarded as straightforward and painless. Several injection-based treatments are detailed below. Visudyne Visudyne drug treatment is a photodynamic therapy that was the first drug therapy...

Managing Macular Degeneration: Diet and Lifestyle Diet plays a significant role when it comes to health management and much more so in such a sensitive case as macular degeneration. As is the case with most eye complications, macular degeneration has no direct cure. Treatment of the disease is instead based on the use of certain drugs, many of which aim to limit the growth of new blood vessels in the retina. Fortunately, there are also nutritional measures that aid in keeping vision loss at bay.     Eating Right The obvious...

What is the Macular Degeneration Association and what do they do? The Macular Degeneration Association (MDA) is an organization that focuses on research, informing the public, and eventually curing macular degeneration. The MDA is a non-profit organization and relies on donations. The MDA is an IRS-recognized 501(c) (3) organization and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Macular degeneration is an eye disease that causes the retina to deteriorate, which in turn causes blindness. At this point, there is no cure for macular degeneration which is why it...

How Fast Does Macular Degeneration Progress? Macular Degeneration is a condition which results in deterioration of the center part of the retina. The retina is located in the inside of the back layer of the eye and sends signals to the optic nerve, which the brain translates into an image. This allows us to interpret what we see. The macula is the center of vision that allows us to see color, focus for reading, and see fine details like the expressions on people’s faces. What Is the Difference Between Wet...
