Total Eyebright-M provides general eye support for Macular Degeneration.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease associated with aging
that gradually destroys sharp, central vision. Central vision is needed for
seeing objects clearly and for common daily tasks such as reading and driving.
AMD affects the macula, the part of the eye that allows you to see fine detail.
AMD causes no pain.
In some cases, AMD advances so slowly that people notice little change in
their vision. In others, the disease progresses faster and may lead to a loss of
vision in both eyes. AMD is a leading cause of vision loss in Americans 60 years
of age and older.
Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of legal blindness in
people older than 55 years in the United States. AMD affects more than 1.75
million individuals in the United States. Because overall life expectancy
continues to increase, age-related macular degeneration has become a major
Macular Degeneration Causes
Macular degeneration often runs in families. There may be a wide variety of
different genes and proteins associated with dry and wet macular degeneration.
Many of the following risk factors have been found to be associated with
age-related macular degeneration:
Age: The likelihood of developing macular degeneration
increases with age.
Race: Macular degeneration is more common in whites but
occurs in all races.
Pigmentation: Macular degeneration is more common in
lightly pigmented people.
Gender: Women seem to be at greater risk.
Smoking is a well-established risk factor for both forms
of macular degeneration.
Family history is perhaps the most important risk factor
other than age.
Obesity and syndrome X, or metabolic syndrome, are also
associated with the condition.
Iris color: As a corollary of skin pigmentation, people
with a more lightly colored iris are more likely to develop some forms of
Sleep apnea may be associated with macular degeneration
independent of the obesity risk factor.
Exposure to sunlight: Those with lifelong outdoor careers
or hobbies as well as those living near the equator and at high altitudes
are at greater risk
Medications: Some medications like Fosamax for osteoporosis may
predispose to macular degeneration.
High degrees of myopia may be associated with age-related macular
degeneration or a similar condition called myopic degeneration.
Macular Degeneration Symptoms
Symptoms of age-related macular degeneration include the following:
Drusen (yellow deposits under the retina)
A loss in contrast sensitivity.
Atrophy: incipient and geographic
Central scotomas (shadows or missing areas of vision)
Slow recovery of visual function after exposure to bright light
Visual acuity drastically decreasing (two levels or more) ex: 20/20 to
Exudative changes: hemorrhages in the eye, hard exudates, subretinal/sub-RPE/intraretinal
Distorted vision in the form of metamorphopsia, in which a grid of
straight lines appears wavy and parts of the grid may appear blank. Patients
often first notice this when looking at mini-blinds in their home.
Trouble discerning colors; specifically dark ones from dark ones and
light ones from light ones.
Macular degeneration by itself will not lead to total blindness. For that
matter, only a very small number of people with visual impairment are totally
blind. In almost all cases, some vision remains. The loss of central vision
profoundly affects visual functioning. It is not possible, for example, to read
without central vision. Pictures that attempt to depict the central visual loss
of macular degeneration with a black spot do not really do justice to the
devastating nature of the visual loss.
