Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Are you available to chat? I practice retina, and would be happy to help you. I do not believe that there is any ophthalmologist by that name on this site.
Hi. It is important to check your central vision daily with the amsler grid your ophthalmologist gave you and promptly report any changes you might notice. Also, for dry ARMD, you should start taking a multi-vitamin that conforms to the AREDS study data. One brand name that is good is called Ocuvite Preservision. It is also important that you stop smoking if you do so....
Here is a nice web page that reviews the available eye vitamins:
I would also make sure that you are receiving all your eye care from an ophthalmologist at this point. If you are suffering from ARMD, which can destroy your central vision, and possibly have evidence of glaucoma, which affects your side vision first, you should not be, in my opinion, treated by an optometrist.
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
