Age Related Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration treatments as well as Vitreoretinal Surgery (which is used to correct it) needs to be performed by an Ophthalmologist, and we work with Dr. Zoran Aleksic FCS (SA) Ophth. to ensure that you get only the very best eye treatment and care in Cape Town.

 

What is Age-related Macular Degeneration?

Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a disease that affects your central vision and is a common cause of vision loss among people over age of 60. Because only the centre of your vision is usually affected, people rarely go blind from the disease. However, AMD can sometimes make it difficult to read, drive, or perform other daily activities that require fine, central vision.
