Juvenile Macular Degeneration Care In San Jose
Juvenile Macular Degeneration
What is Juvenile Macular Degeneration?
Dr. Lucy is the leading low vision doctor in San Jose, providing the highest quality care for patients with Juvenile Macular Degeneration such as Stargardt’s, Best Disease, and Juvenile Retinoschisis. Unlike age-related macular degeneration, these diseases are not a function of age but are genetically inherited.
Similar to AMD they affect the macula which is responsible for central vision. The effects are particularly difficult to cope with as they diminish the independence of the patient by reducing their ability to read, see faces, and drive.
Are there options for Stargardt’s, Best Disease, and Juvenile Retinoschisis?
Currently, there are no treatments or cures for Juvenile macular degeneration. However, there are many ways to improve vision through implants, telescopes, and visual aids to allow the patient to regain their independence.
Patients who use telescopes for driving are able to gain a sense of normalcy and independence that is life-changing.
