AMD (Age-Related Macular Degeneration) robs patients of their central vision and is the number one cause of vision loss in the US for people over 60. It is estimated that up to 11 million Americans have AMD and that number is expected to double in the next 20-30 years. We are committed to helping you preserve your healthy sight.
In 2020, Kirman Eye became the first office in the world to have the AdaptDx Pro instrument. This breakthrough technology detects AMD years ahead of when it shows symptoms. This allows our doctors to implement vitamin therapy and other preventative measures before precious sight is lost.
What can you do to lower your risk of developing AMD?
- Wear good polarized sunglasses to minimize your UV exposure.
- Eat a healthy diet full of colorful vegetables and fruit.
- Exercise regularly.
- Keep blood pressure and other medical conditions well maintained.
- Have a comprehensive eye exam each year.
Remember, anything that is good for your heart is good for your eyes!
