Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

At Granite Pointe Eye Care, we’ll diagnose your macular degeneration early and help you manage the condition.

What Is Macular Degeneration?

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) develops when your macula — the part of your retina that’s responsible for central vision — becomes damaged. The two main types of macular degeneration are dry and wet, and both can lead to vision loss. Dry AMD develops slowly as you age and may potentially progress into wet AMD if the blood vessels in the back of your eye begin to leak.

Detect It Early

Your first and easiest line of defense against AMD is to schedule regular comprehensive eye exams! The symptoms of macular degeneration include blurry or fuzzy central vision, visual distortions, and trouble with facial recognition. To prevent macular degeneration from progressing, it’s important to catch it early. With our advanced technology, including optomap retinal imaging, optical coherence tomography (OCT), electroretinogram, and fundus photography, we can spot AMD even before it presents any symptoms.

I experienced the most amazing eye treatment from Dr. Frances Leung yesterday (on a Saturday). I took the chance in contacting their office and expected to just leave a message for a return call and was so relieved to be able to select the option for a return call. She called me within five minutes and scheduled a time for me to come in for an evaluation. She did a thorough exam and identified the problem, prescribed medication and I am now on the mend. I will forever be grateful for her expert exam, treatment and quick response. I would give more stars if I could, she is absolutely fantastic. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

My first visit to the office. Best customer Service and kindness experienced in a long time during what we've all been dealt with the past 2 years. Loved meeting Dr. Mitra and her assistant Iman. All at reception were wonderful and very welcoming. I'm looking forward to my upcoming surgery. Highly recommend! Now I've had my eyelid surgery. Been two months, no complications no issues. Dr. Mitra is exceptional. Would depend on her for any medical need I'd require.
