Macular Degeneration Awareness Week 2014
There are some key ways we can fight this disease.
The first step is to have an eye examination and macula check.
Secondly, do not ignore any changes in vision. Early detection can literally save your sight.

Macular degeneration can only be diagnosed by examining the retina. This must be undertaken by an eye care professional.
Every adult should schedule regular check-ups but if you have any of the following symptoms, you should seek help immediately from an eye care professional:
- Difficulty with reading or doing any other activity which requires fine vision
- When looking at straight lines, they appear wavy, bent or distorted
- Distinguishing faces or facial expressions is becoming difficult
- Dark patches or empty spaces appear in the centre of your vision
