People over the age of 65 have a 30 percent chance of developing age-related macular degeneration. It is the leading cause of blindness for seniors over 65 years old.
A retinal examination, as a part of a complete eye exam provides a method for early detection of the symptoms of macular degeneration. Early detection can lead to early treatment. Dr. Horwitz takes, and stores, digital photographs of her patients' retinas, so that if abnormalities are found, they can be tracked over time.
