Dr Vivek Pandya talks Macular Degeneration for Macula Month

Dr Pandya talks Macular Degeneration

We recently sat down with our resident Vitreo-Retinal specialist Dr Vivek Pandya who specialises in macula conditions. Macula Degeneration is, as the name suggests, a degenerative condition. Dr Pandya explains exactly what your macula is, goes into some detail on the pathology of Macular degeneration and identifies risk factors and what we need to watch out for when it comes to this macular disease.

Macula Degeneration Awareness

According to Macula Foundation Australia, more than 1.7 million Australians have signs of macular disease, but many may not know it. The macula is responsible for detailed central vision. That means you use it for activities such as reading, driving and recognising faces. It’s also responsible for most of your colour vision.

Green leafy vegetables and a balanced diet help support macula health
