Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) is a degenerative condition of the Macula that is caused by hardening of the small arteries supplying oxygen and nutrients to the Retina. The hardening and narrowing of these arteries deprives the Macula of oxygen and nutrition. This results in a slow but progressive loss of function. The visual effects of Macular Degeneration can be relatively minimal with a mild “dimming” or “distortion” of your central vision, or very profound resulting in a complete loss of your central vision. However, Macular Degeneration DOES NOT cause total blindness. Since the effect of Macular Degeneration is limited to the central Retina, its effects are limited to central vision and thus it does not cause any loss of your peripheral vision. Macular Degeneration is a complex eye disease. Fortunately with early diagnosis it is possible to have a number of treatment options available to help preserve your vision.
