Age-Related Macular Degeneration


For many people, being able to drive is very important to their life style and for those still working possibly vital. If retired, your retirement can be impacted extremely badly.

AMD can turn a useful caring family member into some who needs care themselves- a double effect.

AMD does not automatically mean you have to stop driving.  Many people still meet the legal requirements and can continue driving legally and safely. If your optometrist says you have a sight condition in both eyes which cannot be corrected with prescription glasses you have a legal duty to inform your licence authority.

Your optometrist is your first port of call to ensure you have appropriate and up to date glasses. A range of diagnostic equipment is in place to examine and photograph your eyes internally

Again-  Seeking and obtaining prompt treatment

has to be your priority. Delay is the worst option.
