Experience Personalized Care for Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Understanding Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration primarily affects the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for detailed and central vision. This condition can lead to the blurring or loss of central vision, crucial for tasks like reading and recognizing faces. There are two types: dry (atrophic) and wet (neovascular). Our team at amaEyes specializes in diagnosing and managing both forms, with a focus on preserving as much vision as possible.

Identifying AMD: Symptoms and Testing

At amaEyes, we understand that early detection of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is crucial, as many individuals may not initially notice symptoms. Early stages of AMD often present with minor difficulties in seeing fine details. As the condition advances, patients might experience more pronounced issues, such as blank spots in their central vision or distortions in object appearance. To detect AMD in its early stages, we recommend regular eye exams. Our clinic utilizes advanced diagnostic tools like Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Fluorescein Angiography to provide accurate assessments.

Types of AMD


This form of AMD is more common, accounting for about 80% of cases. It is characterized by the thinning of the macula and the formation of drusen, which are tiny protein clusters. In dry AMD, the loss of central vision typically occurs slowly over time.


Less common than dry AMD, wet AMD can lead to more rapid and severe vision loss. It is characterized by the growth of new, abnormal blood vessels beneath the macula, which can leak fluid or blood and cause scarring of the macula.

AMD Treatments and Preventive Measures

Dry AMD Treatments

At amaEyes, we understand that while there is currently no cure for the advanced stages of dry AMD, proactive management is key. We focus on slowing the progression of the condition through nutritional supplements rich in vitamins C and E, Lutein, and other beneficial nutrients. Our team provides personalized advice and support, helping you incorporate these supplements into your daily routine to aid in managing your dry AMD.

Wet AMD Treatments

For those with wet AMD, our approach includes advanced treatments like anti-VEGF medications. These are carefully injected into the eye by our skilled specialists, aiming to reduce the growth of abnormal blood vessels and control leakage. In certain cases, we may also recommend laser surgery as part of your treatment plan. Our goal is to tailor each treatment to your specific needs, ensuring the most effective care for your condition.

Preventative Measures

We advocate a multifaceted approach to AMD prevention:

Regular Comprehensive Eye Exams

Early detection through frequent eye examinations can be crucial in preventing the progression of AMD.

Diet and Nutrition

A diet rich in leafy green vegetables and fish high in omega-3 fatty acids can be beneficial for eye health.

UV Protection

Wearing sunglasses that block UV rays helps protect the retina from potential UV damage.

Smoking Cessation

Smoking significantly increases the risk of AMD, both dry and wet. By quitting smoking you can dramatically reduce your chance of getting AMD.

Manage Cardiovascular Health

Controlling factors like hypertension and cholesterol, which can impact eye health, is an important preventive measure.
