We will perform a comprehensive eye exam in Mooresville, NC to determine if you actually have macular degeneration or if you are suffering from another eye condition.
If you have macular degeneration, you may gradually lose your ability to see objects clearly, and items in your field of vision might begin to appear distorted. Additionally, with this condition, you might lose your ability to see colors clearly, and dark or empty areas may start to appear within the center of your field of vision.
When macular degeneration first develops, it may be extremely hard to detect. However, if you experience any of the above-listed symptoms, it is essential that you contact us at Vision Center of Lake Norman in Mooresville, North Carolina immediately. At this point, we will likely perform a comprehensive eye exam to determine if you actually have macular degeneration or if you are suffering from another eye condition.
Keep in mind that there are two types of macular degeneration: wet and dry. If you have dry macular degeneration, the tissue within the macula of your eye will become progressively thinner until it fails to work properly. Although less common, wet macular degeneration develops when fluids begin to leak from new blood vessels that form in your macula. There is no cure for macular degeneration, but there is treatment and several ways to help prevent it. This is a good reason to have an annual eye exam.
If you have started to notice problems with your eyes and you want to determine whether macular degeneration is developing, make an appointment with our office today. At Vision Center of Lake Norman, we will do everything we can to help you maintain your vision.
