February is Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Awareness Month. Last week Today's Vision blogged about what this condition is. This week we are asking: What are the symptoms of AMD? • Gradual or sudden change in quality of your vision • Loss of central vision • Distorted vision • Blank or blurry spot in central vision • Inability to recognize colors or people’s faces Many people don’t realize they have AMD until their vision is very blurry. This is why it is important to have regular visits to a qualified eye doctor, who can recognize early signs of AMD before you notice any vision problems. What are the risk factors for AMD? • Age is biggest risk factor. AMD is more common in people over 55 years in age. • Genetics or family history of AMD increases your chances of developing this condition. • AMD occurs more often in Caucasian (white) people. • Smoking doubles the risk of developing AMD. How is AMD diagnosed and treated? Your Today's Vision eye doctor will use instruments and tests such as Ophthalmoscopy, Fluorescein Angiography and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) to diagnose AMD.
