Why it is essential to see an optometrist
You can have early signs of macular disease without knowing you have it, but early action could help save your sight.
Regular eye exams are essential for detecting and managing macular degeneration. Your optometrist can detect early signs of macular degeneration and provide appropriate treatment to slow down the progression of the disease, helping you maintain your independence, mobility and quality of life.
Your optometrist will help you manage your disease with treatment and management strategies to slow down the progression of macular degeneration.
If you, or someone you know, is experiencing vision loss, it is essential to see an optometrist as soon as possible.
