IALVS Doctors Support Harvard Special Report: Keep an eye out for age-related macular degeneration
Date:8/31/2013

Corona, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2013

Harvard University Special Health Report released August 22, 2013 states "The earlier Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is detected, the more likely it can be treated successfully." International Academy of Low Vision Specialists (IALVS) doctors, agree wholeheartedly.

Believing in LIFE AFTER VISION LOSS; The IALVS is a group of optometrists who are specially trained in low vision to help patients suffering from:?? ?Macular Degeneration: Wet or Dry, Albinism, Glaucoma, Stargardt's Disease, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinitis Pigmentosa and Other Vision-Limiting Conditions.

“Getting old and going blind is not the only recourse for those diagnosed with macular degeneration,” says IALVS Founder Dr. Richard Shuldiner, O.D. FAAO. “Most eye doctors tell their patients nothing can be done and that simply is not true.”

IALVS doctors are trained and experienced in helping patients diagnosed with low vision. They perform a special low vision evaluation and and educate their patients about all of the alternatives including surgery, telescopic glasses, hands free magnification, nutritional supplements and vision therapy.

According to the Harvard Special Health Report, "Routine eye exams and early detection are important. The earlier AMD is detected, the more likely it can be treated successfully." IALVS doctors agree. All IALVS doctors offer potential patients a free phone consultation to determine if a low vision evaluation makes sense as part of the patient's treatment protocol.
