Macular degeneration is one of the leading causes of blindness in America. It is a chronic, progressive disease of the center of the retina (macula) where all of our central, fine vision comes from. It is associated with family history, older age, Caucasian race, and smoking.
- central vision distortion
- wavy lines
- new black spots
Treatment consists of minimizing risk factors with smoking avoidance/cessation and eye vitamin supplements in high risk patients. In severe cases, patients will need more invasive treatments, such as eye injections and/or lasers in the eye. Dr. Tony T. Choi is keenly experienced in the management of patients with macular degeneration.
