In Macular May, book an appointment to see your optometrist for a macula check.
Early action can save your sight.
Macular degeneration is a condition that affects thousands of people in Australia and can have a significant impact on people’s lives, affecting their independence, mobility, and ability to carry out daily tasks.
It is the leading cause of blindness and severe vision loss in Australia. The most common macular diseases are age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic eye disease, including diabetic macular oedema (DMO).
The good news is early action can save your sight. Diet and lifestyle changes and detecting macular disease early can prevent vision loss.
