Age related macular degeneration ARMD

Age-related macular degeneration is the most important cause of visual impairment in the elderly. The non-exudative or dry form progresses slowly, the exudative or wet form rapidly (within weeks or months). Refer a patient with suspected exudative form of the disease without delay for investigations and treatment. Also consider the significance of the disease in the patients' daily life.

Macular degeneration is diagnosed as either dry (non-neovascular) or wet (neovascular). Neovascular refers to growth of new blood vessels in an area, such as the macula, where they are not supposed to be. The dry form is more common than the wet, with about 85%-90% patients diagnosed. The wet form of the disease usually leads to more serious vision loss. Different forms of macular degeneration may occur in younger patients. These non-age related cases may be linked to heredity, diabetes,

The Handbook of Nutrition, Diet and the Eye is the first book to thoroughly address common features and etiological factors in how dietary and nutritional factors affect the eye. The ocular system is perhaps one of the least studied organs in diet and nutrition, yet the consequences of vision loss can be devastating. One of the biggest contributors to complete vision loss in the western hemisphere is diabetes, precipitated by metabolic syndrome. In some developing countries, micronutrient deficiencies are major

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in individuals older than 65 years of age. The authors of this book discuss the role of genetics, sunlight, diet, cardiovascular factors, smoking and alcohol as possible risk factors for AMD. Furthermore, the dry form is more common and accounts for about 85-90% of AMD patients in the USA, while Japanese AMD patients predominantely progress to wet-form or polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). The function of a serine protein gene, HTRA1, in

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive disease of the retina that develops when the light-sensing cells in the central area of vision (the macula) stop working and eventually die. Thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, the disease is the leading cause of blindness in people over 50. In 1995, Dan Roberts retired from teaching to help others who also suffered from macular degeneration. Roberts has established support networks for AMD patients and provided free presentations

Aging research on the human eyes crosses all areas of ophthalmology and also relies upon biological, morphological, physiological, and biochemical tools for its study. This book reviews all aspects of human eye aging. In addition to descriptions of age-related changes in almost all the structures of the human eyes, the authors also include interesting accounts of personal experiments and data. It provides an extensive panorama of what happens during aging in the eye.
