Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss for those 50 years and older. In fact, there are over 200,000 reported cases each year, a number higher than cases of glaucoma and cataracts combined. AMD can be considered “wet” (exudative) or “dry” (atrophic). About 85% of cases are “dry,” and the remaining 15% are “wet.”
AMD occurs when the macula, the retina’s central portion, is damaged. The macula is what is responsible for fine-tuning or focusing our central vision and allows us to see fine details. As a result, the first noticeable symptom is a blur or loss of vision to the central-most vision. Over time, the area of lost vision can expand towards the peripheral vision. The affected area can seem blurred or even become a blank spot in one’s vision. There are no mainstream treatments outside of vitamin therapy when treating dry AMD. At Oxford Recovery Center, we have seen significant success in reversing symptoms of AMD with the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). By doing so, we have been able to help patients regain their independence and quality of life.
