How to Protect Your Sight as You Age

Most of us take our vision for granted until we develop a disorder like cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or diabetic retinopathy. It’s important to realize that early detection of disease is essential.

Fortunately, if you have one of these eye disorders and are treated early enough, the progression of disease often can be slowed or even halted, helping you return to daily activities such as driving, grocery shopping, reading and performing household tasks. Get the facts you need NOW to prevent vision loss, and learn about the most current and effective treatments for common eye disorders.
