Normal Vision Vision w/Macular Degeneration

Juvenile Macular Degeneration

Juvenile macular degeneration is not a term in standard usage at this time. The preferred term for conditions that affect the macula in younger individuals related to genetics is macular dystrophy.  Examples of these include:

  • Best’s disease
  • Doyne’s honeycomb retinal dystrophy
  • Sorsby’s disease
  • Stargardt’s disease

The first genetic link to juvenile macular degeneration was discovered at the Cleveland Clinic.

Macular degeneration, in its advanced forms, can result in legal blindness, resulting in a loss of driving privileges and an inability to read all but very large type. Perhaps the most grievous loss is the inability to see faces clearly or at all.

Some of these losses can be offset by the use of adaptive devices. A closed-circuit television reader can make reading possible, and specialized screen-reading computer software, e.g., JAWS for Windows, can give the blind person access to word processing, spreadsheet, financial and e-mail access.

Your Appointment

We strive to keep patient “wait times” to a minimum.  With that in mind, we see patients by appointment only.  We do often have a last-minute cancellation which does accommodate same day appointments.

You can also reduce your wait by using the Patient Forms available online.  Open the form you wish to use and print a copy.  Fill out the form and remember to bring them with you for your appointment.
