Age-Related Macular Degeneration Treatment at Lowcountry Eye Care
What Is Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)?
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is condition where your macula wears down as you age. This part of your eye is responsible for your central vision and its deterioration affects your ability to see fine details. While it’s rare to go completely blind, AMD can cause significant vision loss and make it difficult to complete daily activities like driving or reading. Once your vision is damaged, it can’t be reversed, but there are steps we can take to help you slow or prevent the onset of this disease.

We Have the Advanced Technology to Detect and Treat AMD
Without an evaluation by an expert eye care professional, you won’t notice AMD until your vision is affected. Luckily, at Lowcountry Eye Care, you don’t have to worry about severe vision loss from undetected AMD. Our skilled doctors use Optos retinal imaging to take detailed scans of your eyes during your regular eye exams to assess their health and detect any issues early on.
