Diagnosed with Macular Degeneration? Technology-enabled wearable devices help to regain vision and gives greater independence.

Macular Degeneration

Low vision or blurred vision highly affects people’s daily activities and lifestyle in various ways. Low vision is the term used generally to describe the complications caused by age-related macular degeneration (AMD), an eye disease that may get worse over time.

Macular degeneration is currently the primary cause of severe, permanent vision loss in people over age 60. Macular degeneration normally occurs when the part of the retina that gives central vision called the macula, wears down. The macula helps us to see the fine detail in things that our eyes are focusing on and provides the best visual acuity. This condition is significantly affecting people’s reading and writing abilities as well as moving around to perform daily routine tasks.
