Q&A with Dr. L
Dr. Lesslie Answers Your Eyecare Questions
What is age related macular degeneration?
Macular degeneration is a disease that affects the macula of the eye. The macula is the part of the retina that gives people the ability to appreciate details and see colors. It is responsible for the "straight ahead" central vision that allows people to navigate all visual daily tasks like reading, driving, and watching tv. When a person begins to develop macular degeneration these things that are normally taken for granted become harder to do. Progression of the disease can lead to images becoming dim or black holes at the center of vision. Risk factors for developing ARMD include age, race, family history and smoking(smoking doubles the risk).
So, whether you’re seeking an optometrist in North Charleston for a routine eye examination, or you need to find the perfect pair of contact lenses, eyeglasses or progressive eye wear designs, or you’re considering eye surgery (such as LASIK or cataract surgery), if you need help managing eye condtions like, myopia, farsightedness, glaucoma, or dry eye syndrome, Lesslie Vision Care is your preferred destination in North Charleston, Berkley, and Dorchester counties for the best care, advice, options and follow up.
