Age Related Macular Degeneration - How It Affects You?

Age Related Macular Degeneration - How It Affects You?

Age-related macular degeneration, also known in brief as AMD or ARMD is one of the most common age-related causes for vision loss. It causes “blind spots” in vision, causing difficulty in activities requiring central vision like reading, sewing, driving, watching TV, computer usage, etc.

How it happens?

The centre portion of the eye is known as retina which has a screen in the posterior portion. For proper vision, light falls on this screen and is then processed to enable ‘vision.’ When this screen is not clear, blurred vision results. It may not cause total blindness but impairs vision including double vision and loss of central vision.

Types: There are two types of AMD, wet and dry.

  1. Dry: There are yellow deposits known as drusen which form in the macula, and as they grow in size, they impair vision, specifically the central vision. This is the common variant and can lead to the wet form.
  2. Wet: There are abnormal blood vessels which are formed in the retina. There is leaking of blood and fluid which makes it ‘wet.’ There could be scarring of these leaked substances, which again leads to loss of central vision. Further studies have shown that retina produces a protein knows as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) which promotes the generation of new blood vessels, normally required for the production of new blood vessels. However, increased VEGF causes excessive proliferation of blood vessels, leading to macular degeneration.

Risk factors: Though age related, there are definitely some factors which put one at a higher risk for AMD

  1. Genetics: AMD is hereditary and runs in families
  2. Gender: Females are more prone to develop AMD than males
  3. Ageing: People above 60 are at greater risk
  4. Smoking: Direct and passive smoking contribute to AMD.
  5. Obesity: Accelerates the pace of AMD and severity of complications.
  6. Hypertension: Increases the chances of developing AMD
  7. Ethnicity: Caucasians are more prone to develop AMD as their lighter skin and eye color is more prone to sun damage
  8. Sun exposure: Increased sun exposure accelerates the onset of AMD

Symptoms:

  1. No symptoms in the initial stages
  2. Gradually, there is impaired central vision, affecting activities like reading, driving, and computer usage
  3. Color perception is impaired

Diagnosis:

  1. A routine eye exam will reveal the yellow deposits which actually cause the condition.
  2. An angiography may be done after injecting a dye to detect blood vessel growth.

Treatment:

There is no cure, but progress can be delayed

  1. Anti-angiotensin agents reduce pressure in the eyes and stop development of newer blood vessels
  2. Vitamins help slow down loss of vision
  3. Vision aids to correct vision. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ophthalmologist.

My loving father is 78 years old and he is suffering from Cataract, eye disease. Kindly suggest the best cure for him.
For cataract, surgery is recommended when the patient experiences decreased vision which can' be improved further with glasses or associated symptoms like glare in daylight or at night while driving which impair and affect day to day activities. A complete dilated eye examination and tests for physical fitness for surgery will be required to plan a cataract surgery for his eyes to visually rehabilitate him.

you can plan lasik laser surgery Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not

Eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye (sclera) become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: • Eye dryness • Too much sun exposure • Dust or other particles in the eye • Allergies • Infection • Injury Homoeopathic medicine EUPHRASIA 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 2 drops direct on tongue every 2-3 hrly CINERARIA /EUPHRASIA EYEDROPS ( SBL ) pour into eyes 1-2 drops 3 times daily

For headache take tablet paracetamol and check your eye sight for refractive error and also we need to rule out sinusitis as the cause

This could be a mole. But since it is getting bigger it is recommended that you consult an eye specialist. It may require removal. If there is a Oculoplasty specialist in your place it is better to consult him/her
