Age-related Macular Degeneration - How to prevent?

There are no proven preventive medications for 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.
