Dr. Cooper discusses the treatment of Macular Degeneration on Fox13news.com:
Having trouble seeing? It may be more than just “getting old.”
As people age, it’s natural for their vision to worsen gradually over time. But sometimes vision problems are caused by something beyond aging. If your vision is worsening, it’s important to know what’s causing the change– many conditions are treatable if diagnosed early enough, and even if the underlying problem can’t be cured, better vision is often possible.
What causes Low Vision?
There are many conditions that cause Low Vision. Some of the most common:
- Macular Degeneration (ARMD) – Dry or Wet
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Retinitis Pigmentosa
- Ocular Albinism
Other causes of Low Vision include Macular hole, Macular detachment, Hypertensive Retinopathy, Inoperable Cataracts, Macular Dystrophy and Stargardt’s Disease of the Macula. Learn more about the causes of Low Vision.
Whatever the cause of your vision problems, here’s the good news: Thanks to recent advances in optics technology, there are Low Vision treatment options that deliver great results but don’t require surgery or medication– you might be able to see better with specialized eyeglasses!
