How’s your macula?
Macular disease can affect anyone, at any age. The most common macular disease is age-related macular degeneration (AMD). It’s responsible for 50 per cent of blindness in Australia. Diabetic eye disease, which can also affect the macula, is the number one cause of preventable blindness in working-age Australians.
You can have early signs of these or other macular diseases without knowing. The only way to accurately diagnose macular disease is by visiting your eye health professional – an optometrist or ophthalmologist. But you can learn about your risk. Early action saves sight, so start the quiz!
