Are You at Risk For Macular Degeneration?

There is no known cure for Age Related Macular Degeneration...AMD and if left untreated it can lead to the loss of your central vision. 

To find out if you are at risk for Age Related Macular Degeneration or if you have known risk factors for AMD, it is critical to measure how much protective macular pigment you have in the back of your eyes. Macular pigment you have in the back of your eyes. Macular pigment helps to protect your retina from damage by filtering harmful visible blue light that can lead to AMD.

A simple and reliable test using an instrument called a Macular Densitometer measures your Macular Pigment level and gives an immediate Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD) score.

Your MPOD Score gives the doctor a clear understanding of your risk factor for developing Macular Degeneration. If you are at risk, your MPOD score helps the Doctor to develop your specific treatment plan which may include supplementation with Macuhealth for rebuilding your macular pigment and prescribing BluTech lenses that also help to filter harmful visible blue light. Periodic MPOD re-testing will be done to monitor your macular pigment rebuilding progress. 

Restoring your Macularpigment back to healthy levels has been scientifically proven to be the best way to minimize your risk for developing AMD, supplementation with Macuhealth has the potential to slow down or stop the progression of the disease and to improve visual acuity.
