Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the USA. It is a genetic disease that develops with smoking, poor diet, high energy light and the aging process. Early signs include decreased ability to see at night or “night blindness”. Later, changes occur in the back of your eyes(retina). Long term, loss of vision occurs due to an unhealthy, swollen retina. Tumwater Eye Center is dedicated to technology for early diagnosis, genetic testing to determine long term risk of vision loss, recommending scientifically proven supplementation, utilizing proper eye protection, and close monitoring of the disease with advanced retinal imaging techniques.
