Macular Degeneration

Retina & Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration is a lesion or decomposition of the macula.  The macula is a small zone of the retina, situated in the posterior part of the eye, which permits seeing the finer details with clarity and conduct activities like reading or driving a vehicle.  When the macula does not work correctly, the central vision can be affected by the formation of blurry images, with deformed or obscured areas.  The macular degeneration affects your capacity to see near and far objects; it can make that some activities (like treading a needle) become difficult or impossible.  But even if the macular degeneration reduces vision in the central part of the retina, it does not affect the lateral or peripheral vision of the eye.

Treatment: Even as medical investigation is on its way, there is still no cure for the “dry” macular degeneration.  Some doctors consider that  nutritional complements can slow down the macular degeneration, but It is not a proven fact.  Certain types of “wet” macular degeneration can be treated with laser surgery, a brief and habitually painless procedure.
