Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration can lead to blindness, but an EYE TEST can save your sight!

If you answer yes to any of the questions below, you could be 1 in 7 people with macular degeneration.

  • Are you age 50 and up?

  • Do you smoke?

  • Is there someone in the family with macular degeneration?

  • Are you experiencing reduced vision?

Why is Macular Degeneration a Concern?

Because blindness is.

The macula of eye is responsible for central, detailed vision. We read books, drive, recognise faces and appreciate colours with it. When our macula wears out, we see things differently. Wavy lines. A blurred or patchy area in the central vision. Loss of central vision. Eventual blindness.

Sadly, there is no known cure for macular degeneration at the moment. That’s why an eye test is so important.
