What causes AMD?
Ageing; AMD is more prevalent among women, and more commonly afflicts white and Chinese people.
There are two types of AMD: wet AMD, which causes scarring and permanent damage to retinal cells; and dry AMD, the more common type, in which vision loss occurs gradually.
When it comes to AMD treatment, early detection is crucial. Vision loss that has already occurred cannot be reversed, but early stages of AMD can be slowed down by an increase in nutritional supplements (vitamins, carotenoids, minerals, and essential fatty acids) and eye injections.
Our skilled ophthalmologists will perform a comprehensive evaluation to accurately diagnose the type and stage of AMD you are experiencing. We will then develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
