Eye Health

Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration (MD) is a disease that gradually destroys central vision and is associated with aging. The central part of vision is needed for seeing objects clearly and for common everyday tasks such as reading and driving.

In some cases, MD maybe so slow that people fail to notice the gradual deterioration of their vision. In others, the disease progresses faster and may lead to a permanent loss of central vision.

While there is presently no cure for Macular Degeneration, there are steps that you can take to prevent or slow the progress of the disease.

MD is present in 15% of people between the ages of 70-75 and is now the leading cause of blindness and severe vision loss in Australia.

Regular eye checks from the age of 40yrs will help in the early detection of MD

Some of the Symptoms of Macular Degeneration

  • The first signs of MD involve distortion of vision where straight lines appear wavy or bent, rather than loss of sight.
  • Difficulty reading
  • Difficulty distinguishing faces
  • Need for increased illumination
  • Sensitivity to glare
  • Decreased night vision
  • Reduced colour sensitivity

Risks for developing Macular Degeneration:

Ageing is the greatest risk factor. The prevalence trebles with each decade over 40 years.

Smokers have a 3 times greater risk of developing MD. They also develop the disease approximately 10 years earlier than non-smokers.

Women have slightly higher risk than men.

Family history is a risk factor. Genes have been identified and linked with MD. There is a 50% chance of developing MD if there is a family history of the disease.

Defending against Macular Degeneration:

Early detection of MD is crucial as some forms of the disease may be arrested with early treatment.

Regular eye examinations are the key to early detection before vision loss occurs.

Eat a healthy diet. (See more details below).

Consider taking a zinc and anti-oxidant supplement.

Eye protection against UV damage. This is especially important before MD develops.

Maintain a healthy weight and get some regular exercise (minimum of a 30 minute walk, three times a week).

Don’t smoke.
