Have you recently experienced a partial loss of vision? Notice things appear wavy, blurred or distorted? You may be suffering from macular degeneration, a common condition that can result in visual loss. In fact, across the world it is estimated that macular degeneration is responsible for 50% of visual impairment in patients. Although it is not possible to reverse macular degeneration, it is possible to slow down the progression of the disease. At Philip E. Stein, OD, we are proud to offer macular degeneration management for patients that suffer from both dry macular degeneration and wet macular degeneration. Of particular importance for evaluating, following, and managing macular degeneration is having an Optomap retinal scan. There is a mode we routinely use which can detect macular degeneration before it is even symptomatic.
A properly manufactured omega-3, antioxidant, and vitamin complex, that are of the correct biochemical forms, and highly absorbable, have been shown to be effective in maintaining retinal health, thus preventing the development and progression of macular degeneration. Most preparations found on over the counter pharmacy shelves do not meet these criteria. Dr. Stein highly recommends the products manufactured by PRN Physician Recommended Nutriceuticals. Specifically, Macular Vitamin Benefits AREDS Formula and Eye Omega Advantage are effective for these purposes.
