Macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that affects the central vision of people over 50 years of age. It is the leading cause of visual impairment in Australia. Early detection can help slow vision loss. Regular eye exams, quitting smoking and having good diet and nutrition all help.
Our comprehensive Macular Degeneration assessment includes a complete eye exam, a dilated pupil test, visual field test and an OCT scan of your macula and optic nerves. Our optometrists also provide advice on diet, nutrition and supplements and useful tools for home assessment and monitoring for macular degeneration.
Low Vision consultations and advice on magnifiers are available for people with permanent vision loss.
