May 24-30 2015 is Macula Degeneration Awareness Week. Macular Degeneration affects one in seven over the age of 50, with the prevalence increasing with age, and is the leading cuse of blindness in Australia.
Top tips for preventing vision loss are: eat a diet rich in fish and coloured vegetables, don’t smoke, and never ignore changes in vision. Have your eyes tested regularly and make sure a macula check is part of it, early detection and treatment give the best results!
