- A gradual decline in the ability to see objects clearly
- Distorted vision
- Dark or empty spaces blocking the central field of vision
- Dimming of colour vision
The Way I See It....there is currently no cure of Age-related Macular Degeneration but treatments are available that are aimed at maintaining the vision for as long possible. You must visit an eye doctor about seeing if other eye problems that affect vision can be detected. Also an up-to-date glasses prescription is important as well as getting any cataracts and glaucoma treated.
Aside from the new found belly-fat risk just mentioned, there is a now a well-established link between smoking and AMD....so it makes good sense for women as well as men to avoid or give up smoking as they enter their third trimester of Life.
