Macular degeneration affects the macula, the central part of the retina that allows people to focus on fine details. If left untreated, macular degeneration can eventually destroy central (non-peripheral) vision.
At Midwest Eye Professionals in Orland Park, our doctors treat macular degeneration. The course of treatment is dependent on the patient’s health history and the type and severity of the disease. Our doctors utilize numerous techniques to treat macular degeneration including low vision aids, eye medications, laser treatments, and nutritional supplements.
