The warning signs of macular degeneration include distortion of vision (for example, lines become wavy), loss of detailed vision or a black spot in your vision. An eye examination should be performed immediately should this happen.
At Toronto Eye Surgery, we have the latest high-definition Optical Coherence Tomography (Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT) that images the retina in great detail and monitors the progression of treatment. We also have a digital fundus camera which is used to diagnose MD and monitor its progress.
Treatment of wet MD using Lucentis and Eyelea is available at Toronto Eye Surgery. For more information about MD, visit the Macular Degeneration Foundation.
