          • High cholesterol
          • 肥胖
          • 抽烟
          • Risks you cannot control include age, family history, gender and race.


          AMD symptoms include blurriness, wavy lines, or a blind spot. You may also notice visual distortions such as:

          • Straight lines or faces appearing wavy
          • Doorways seeming crooked
          • Objects appearing smaller or farther away

          If you notice any 的 these symptoms, you should see an ophthalmologist as soon as possible. If you are diagnosed with wet AMD, it is important to see a Retina Specialist for the most appropriate care

          Reducing your risk for AMD

          • Eat a diet with plenty 的 green, leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, and collard greens, and fresh fruit.
        • It’s important to keep your body healthy. Maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, maintain healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The healthier your body, the more it can foster good eye health.
        • Protect your eyes. Wear sunglasses and a hat with a visor in bright sunlight to protect your eyes from potentially harmful ultra-violet (UV) light and blue light.
        • Living with AMD

          Millions of people have macular degeneration and millions 的 them continue to do everything they always did. Because you never become blind with AMD, there is always sight available if you know how to use it.
