The Macular Degeneration Service is dedicated to excellence in the diagnosis and treatment of macular degeneration. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of central vision loss in the Western world in persons over the age of 55. There are currently 15 million people in the United States with AMD and the incidence will increase to 25 million over the next 20 years as our population ages. AMD is therefore a growing public health issue.
Carolina Eye has been a leader in AMD care and research for the last several decades. Our physicians have played a major role in the development of AMD treatments, such as macular translocation surgery, photodynamic therapy, and argon laser photocoagulation. We continue to be leaders in AMD research and clinical trials.
This Service offers state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, including manual and computerized visual field testing, gonioscopy, optical coherence tomography, tonometry, and optic nerve head imaging with Heidelberg retinal tomography.
Carolina Eye now offers FOCUS MaculaPro Vitamins for healthy vision. FOCUS MaculaPro vitamins were developed by a group of over 400 retina specialists (the medical doctors who specialize in treating macular degeneration) to provide patients with macular degeneration a trusted, physician-recommended product of the highest quality. MaculaPro vitamins are based on the formula studied by the National Eye Institute. FOCUS MaculaPro vitamins are manufactured in an FDA-registered facility using only high quality ingredients. Extensive testing is performed to assure the premium quality of FOCUS MaculaPro vitamins.
FOCUS MaculaPro +Lutein are now available for smokers.
