Practical Strategies for Preventing Blindness Caused by AMD

Guidelines for Preventing Avoidable Vision Loss

There is currently no cure for AMD, but with proper care, significant visual acuity loss may be prevented in many patients. To be clear, the goal of managing AMD is to preserve vision–not to wait until vision has already been lost.

The purpose of this paper is to assure you that optometrists can—and will—do better. After reviewing the literature and changing the way we deliver AMD in our own practices, the authors of this paper have mutually agreed upon five clinically appropriate practice guidelines. Here's how you too can incorporate these improved standards to more effectively fight the devastating consequences of AMD.
