Glaucoma & Macular Degeneration Screening

Age-related Macular Degeneration Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is caused by damage to the part of the eye which controls your central vision and helps you see fine details. Unlike glaucoma, it has no affect your peripheral vision, although reading and other daily activities such as driving or facial recognition are more difficult.
Glaucoma Undetected, Glaucoma can damage the optic nerve causing loss of vision or even blindness. It has no obvious symptoms and many patients don't know they have an incurable disease, but early screening can prevent the worst case scenario. Technologically advanced equipment like OCT scans and retinal photography make it possible to detect before symptoms appear.
