Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) often leads to significant vision loss in people over 60. It can hurt their mental well-being as it can triggers social isolation, helplessness, and depression. A low vision specialist such as Dr. Chris Palmer is specially trained to treat degenerative eye conditions. “AMD is a fairly common condition in people. The average age of my patients is 84 years old. Hence, I see a lot of people suffering from macular degeneration. To ensure long-term results, I believe in a task-based approach. We start with performing a thorough examination of the patient’s remaining vision before designing customized vision options and charting the rest of the course of treatment,” Dr. Palmer added.
“I felt like Dr. Palmer took his time and gave me a thorough exam in regards to my macular degeneration. There are no magic bullets, but I see better with my new glasses with prisms. I enjoy reading, and as long as I have adequate light and wear my new glasses, I can read large print books,” said Pat P., one of Dr. Palmer’s patients.
One of the distinguished services provided by Dr. Palmer is the process wherein the doctor and patient work together with the glasses before they are ordered, which means they are thoroughly tested and demonstrated so the patient knows what to expect. Another key part of the process is a free phone consultation.
