Age-related Macular Degeneration - How to prevent?

There are no proven preventive medications for Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).

The best way to avoid permanent vision loss is with prompt eye examination and diagnosis by your eye doctor. Early diagnosis improves the treatment success.

A screening tool, the Amsler grid, may help detect subtle changes in your vision. You can monitor your vision daily by looking at an Amsler grid.

You should also eat a balanced diet that includes leafy green vegetables, stop smoking, and protect your eyes from UV light with protective sunglasses or brimmed head gear.
