Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) affects more than 10 million Americans.  About 10% of these patients will develop wet ARMD which accounts for 90% of the visual loss due to the disease.
 
Wet Macular Degeneration
 
If you have ARMD, ask your eye care specialist if you might be a candidate.  The treatment is usually performed by an ophthalmologist who specializes in retinal diseases.   Dr. Gersman of Vitreo-Retinal Consults, Inc. is a retinal specialist who evaluates and treats patients in our Marietta office location.
 
All patients with macular degeneration should follow an Amsler Grid (pdf, 125 kb) regularly and report any changes to their eye care provider as soon as possible.  Evaluation of a change in the Amsler Grid is urgent.
 
We now sell Focus Vitamins that contain the same formula used in the Age Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) by the National Eye Institute.  This is the only proven formula to date to decrease the risk of your Macular Degeneration getting worse.
