Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness among older Americans, but new treatments have dramatically changed the course of this disease over the last 10 years, making AMD more manageable than ever before. During AMD Awareness Month in February, Northridge Eye Care is reminding people with AMD that they can save their vision thanks to recent treatment advances, but early detection is a critical first step.
