Our thorough eye exams and high-tech approach
help fight AMD at its earliest stages
The macula is also delicate — and many natural aging processes can damage it. This is called age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and is a leading cause of irreversible vision loss in people over age 50.
The good news is, we’ll help you stay a step ahead of AMD: our annual eye exams can catch its earliest signs, so we can start managing it well before any vision loss occurs. Everyone experiences some changes in their eyesight with age, but macular degeneration can be kept under control, and we’re here to keep your eyes covered with early detection and personalized treatment plans!
Keep Your Eyes Covered
Why Choose University Vision Centre
As AMD progresses, vision loss is irreversible. But early detection and preventative measures can help secure your eyesight and quality of life. We utilize cutting-edge technology to catch macular degeneration as early possible — long before vision loss occurs. And we’re always here to explain what’s happening with your eyes and plan your management, with your input. Some of our most advanced diagnostics include:
ForeseeHome: While most screenings test for dry AMD, this at-home, easy-to-use device checks for the more sudden-onset wet AMD twice a week. It immediately reports if there’s any issue — and is often covered by insurance!
AdaptDx Pro: How your eyes adjust to light is a subtle but effective way to test macular health, and this specialized tool does precisely that.
Optos optomap: This imaging device takes an ultra-widefield picture of the back of your eye so we can clearly see your retina and surrounding tissue.
The Best Way to Manage AMD? Catch It Early!
You’d never notice many of these on your own — high levels of fatty deposits called drusen near the macula, subtle shifts in how your eye reacts to changes in light — but our eye doctors and diagnostic technology can make sure you’re getting AMD care as soon as you need it.
Don’t wait until it’s too late: schedule your next AMD screening today!
