What's New in the World of Retinal Problems?
December 13, 2017

It's the holiday season and a wonderful time to see happy faces, Christmas lights and the beauty of the season. We want you to enjoy those things for years to come and the biggest threat to our central (straight ahead) vision is developing macular degeneration. So in an effort to keep you updated on what you should know and do to protect your vision, here is some updated information on risk prevention in macular degeneration.

Reducing the Risk
Macular degeneration is the biggest risk for vision loss in adults over 50 years old. Both genetics (see below*) and environment play a part. See the checklist below to help reduce your risk for macular degeneration. 

  • Don’t Smoke – If You Do – Stop; If You Don’t – Don’t Start
  • Try Not To Get Diabetes – If You Do – Keep A Low A1C 
  • Indoor Glasses – Blue Light Protection on Digital Devices
  • Outdoor Glasses – Ultraviolet Protection 
  • Macular Pigment Density > .50 – Do You Know Your Score?
  • Macular Genetics – Simple Cheek Swab to Know
