What is macular degeneration?
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of new adult blindness in the United States.
An eye disease that mostly affects the elderly, macular degeneration has become a serious public health concern as our population grows older and lives longer.
The Macular Degeneration Center at OHSU Casey Eye Institute in Portland, Oregon is focused on finding the underlying causes of age-related macular degeneration and developing better methods of prevention and treatment.
Drawing patients from throughout the Western region, the Macular Degeneration Center is made up of clinicians, basic scientists and support staff and links cutting-edge research with clinical practice. Our full spectrum of care includes a wide range of low vision rehabilitation, support services and community outreach programs.
