Service Description

Many people with macular degeneration experience minimal vision loss during the early stages of the disease. For most people, macular degeneration does not become vision impairing. During this stage, the transport of wastes and nutrients by the RPE has slowed down. As a result, waste builds up under the retina and forms yellowish deposits known as drusen.

An ophthalmologist examining a patient at this stage may see drusen, although no symptoms may be present or develop later. If the doctor sees drusen, the patient will be monitored. In most cases, the disease will not progress to vision loss, although some patients do experience vision loss with drusen. Many patients over 60 have some drusen.
