Do You Know the Symptoms of AMD?

Do you know the symptoms of age related macular degeneration (AMD)? Our Poplar Bluff and Sikeston optometrists want to ensure that you do! During the early stages of this eye disease, you may not experience any symptoms at all, particularly if you have the condition in only one eye. Unlike other health problems, AMD does not usually cause pain or other symptoms that you would notice right away. Instead, the symptoms of macular degeneration tend to come about slowly.


Reduce Your Risk of Retinal Conditions

Retinal diseases put your vision at risk, because they often sneak up on you. The early stages of many eye diseases may show no symptoms, but your Poplar Bluff eye doctor can detect these silent eye conditions during an annual exam. Regular visits to your Sikeston optometrist ensure that eye problems are caught in a timely manner, when they are most treatable. Between annual eye care appointments, there are many steps you can take to preserve your eye health and keep your vision as sharp as possible.
