February Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Awareness Month

When was the last time you had a full comprehensive eye exam? February is Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Awareness Month.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness among older Americans, but new treatments have dramatically changed the course of this disease over the last 10 years, making AMD more manageable than ever before. During AMD Awareness Month in February, the American Academy of Ophthalmology is reminding people with AMD that they can save their vision thanks to recent treatment advances, but early detection is a critical first step.
