February is Age-Related Macular Degeneration Awareness Month
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the deterioration of the center of the retina called the macula and is the most common cause of vision loss in people over the age of 55. The macula is responsible for our central vision and our ability to see color and fine detail. In the early stages of AMD, there is little or no vision loss, but as the disease advances, images can become blurred, distorted, or a dark or empty area can appear in the center of the vision.
With regular checkups, early diagnosis, and new treatment options, doctors are able to prevent or minimize the damage that AMD can cause to vision. Mount Sinai's Department of Ophthalmology has several retina specialists who can accommodate your needs, if you experience any symptoms. View our list of eye care specialists
