February is macular degeneration awareness month, serving as a great reminder to schedule your next appointment at the Fishkill or Poughkeepsie office of Setta Eye Centers. Macular degeneration symptoms may be slow to develop and, because there is no cure, catching it early is the most effective way to save your eyesight.
One of the most effective ways to slow the progression of macular degeneration is adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle. Fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and foods high in antioxidants and other nutrients have been shown to help slow vision loss following a macular degeneration diagnosis.
In addition to diet, our board-certified ophthalmologists provide several treatments that can relieve the symptoms and help slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration.
To learn more about macular degeneration or to schedule your next appointment with one of our eye doctors, please call 845-454-1025 . We serve the Hudson Valley with offices in Poughkeepsie and Fishkill.
