Main Content

The macula is an area of the light-sensitive retina in the center of the back of

the eye. In the center of the macula is the fovea that contains densely packed

photoreceptor cells which are necessary for seeing fine detail and providing

sharp straight-ahead vision.

Macular Degeneration and Low Vision

Low vision due to macular degeneration can be considered an “invisible

disability”. You cannot look at someone with this condition and tell how it has

affected their vision. There is no way to understand how much their vision has

become impaired unless you hand them something to read. Someone with

macular degeneration will be able to walk to the mailbox with relative ease, but

may not be able to read the mail.

I ca  se  th  le ters, but I cannot understand what I read. I have a blurry spot in

what I am looking at. Some letters are faint or distorted while others come and

go as I move my eyes. My brain has to fill in what my eyes are not able to see.

These glasses have helped me to read again and also to watch television. My retinal specialist told me that nothing more could be done, but these glasses are definitely worth the $2,000 cost. I have become more independent with them and I enjoy being able to see!
