Macular degeneration is an eye condition that causes vision loss. When you know the causes and symptoms of macular degeneration, you will be able to identify any signs early and seek evaluation and treatment from our Continue Reading, Christine Castillo, OD and MH Rockoff, OD. And early detection and treatment is the very best strategy to address any eye disease or problem. At West U Vision, our goal is to keep you seeing as well as possible all the time.

While the exact causes of macular degeneration are not known, there is a good chance that heredity plays a role. A pattern of running in families has been observed. Environment may also play a part in causing it, though no proof is currently available to support that theory. While the causes of macular degeneration may not be well understood, there are identifiable risk factors. The most prominent one is age. There is a tendency for macular degeneration to be more likely as you get older. Also, having lighter skin color and lighter eye color increases the likelihood of getting it. Women have higher risk than men do. Other risks include obesity, smoking, too much exposure to sunlight, sleep apnea, and taking certain medications. Our Continue Reading, as part of a comprehensive eye exam, will ask you about your heredity and discuss those concerns that might increase your risk of macular degeneration.

With a thorough checkup, it can be determined if you are dealing with macular degeneration or not. If so, while macular degeneration cannot be cured or reversed, there are ways to ensure that it does not prevent you from living your life to the fullest.

Optical Eye Care Center

20/20 vision indicates the sharpness or clarity of vision.  There are other important vision skills, including peripheral awareness or side vision, eye coordination, depth perception, focusing ability and color vision that contribute to your overall visual ability.  Our West Univeristy eye care center will test your vision for these eye regularities.  Some people can see well at a distance, while closer objects are blurry.  This condition can be caused by hyperopia, or farsightedness, this may also be referred to as presbyopia or loss of focusing ability.

Myopia or nearsightedness refers to those people who can see close objects, but their vision is blurry with objects further away.  Our West University vision care includes eye exams by our optometrists who will diagnose the causes, if any, that are affecting your ability to see well.  Our West University optometrist can prescribe glasses, contact lenses or a vision therapy program that will help improve your vision.  If the reduced vision is due to an eye disease we will refer you to the best eye specialists in our Houston area.
