Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Shree Ram Hospital and Eye Care Centre is dedicated to providing comprehensive services for the diagnosis and treatment of macular degeneration, also known as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is a progressive eye condition that affects the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for sharp, central vision needed for activities like reading and driving.

Our experienced team of ophthalmologists and retina specialists at Shree Ram Hospital utilizes advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to accurately diagnose AMD and develop personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Our comprehensive eye examinations may include optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescein angiography, and visual acuity tests to assess the extent of macular degeneration and identify any underlying factors contributing to the condition.

Treatment for AMD aims to slow down disease progression, preserve remaining vision, and improve visual function. At Shree Ram Hospital, we offer a range of treatment options for AMD, including:

  1. Intravitreal Injections: Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) medications may be injected into the eye to inhibit abnormal blood vessel growth and reduce retinal swelling and leakage associated with AMD.
  2. Photodynamic Therapy (PDT): This minimally invasive procedure involves the use of a light-activated medication to selectively destroy abnormal blood vessels in the retina while preserving healthy retinal tissue.
  3. Laser Therapy: Laser photocoagulation may be used to seal leaking blood vessels and prevent further damage to the macula in certain cases of AMD.
  4. Nutritional Supplements: Dietary supplements containing high doses of antioxidants and vitamins, such as vitamins C and E, zinc, and lutein, may help slow down the progression of AMD and reduce the risk of vision loss.
  5. Low Vision Rehabilitation: Our low vision specialists provide personalized rehabilitation services and adaptive devices to help individuals with advanced AMD maximize their remaining vision and maintain independence in daily activities.

At Shree Ram Hospital, we understand the impact that AMD can have on quality of life, and we are committed to providing compassionate care and support to our patients throughout their treatment journey. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of AMD, such as blurred or distorted central vision, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our experienced team for timely evaluation and appropriate management. With our expertise and dedication to excellence, we are dedicated to helping you preserve vision and enjoy optimal eye health and wellness.
