One of the most effective ways to maintain healthy vision is through prevention and early detection of diseases, so we recommend all people from the communities of Medina, Maple Grove, and Plymouth to visit with our Medina optometrist team on a regular basis. One of the most common eye health problems that we see in people as they age are retinal diseases, including macular degeneration. Read on to learn about our preventative eye care as well as retinal and macular degeneration treatment in Medina.
Your retina is the thin tissue that overlies the inner surface of the back of your eye, and is a critical part of your ability to see. It collects visual images and then sends this information to the brain for processing via the optic nerve, which originates on a spot on your retina called the macula.
Because the retina and macula are both such delicate tissues, they are susceptible to disease, especially as you age. In particular, a common condition known as macular degeneration is hallmarked by central vision loss, and if detected early (even before symptoms develop) can respond to optometry treatment, including nutritional counseling and medications.
Your vision is important, and we know that you want both you and your loved ones' eyesight to remain as healthy as possible throughout every stage of life. Connecting with a trusted, caring, and comprehensive eye doctor on a regular basis is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of eye diseases and maximize your vision and eye health.
