Lifestyle & Management

There is currently no cure for ARMD. If you have ARMD, there are steps you can take in addition to medications or treatments recommended by your healthcare provider. These include not smoking, eating a healthy diet high in vegetables and fruits, maintaining a healthy weight and getting regular exercise, and getting regular eye exams.

Low Vision Rehabilitation

If you have lost vision, low vision rehabilitation can help you adapt and maintain independence. Your healthcare provider or ophthalmologist can help you find vision rehabilitation services. These services are usually provided by a team that includes an ophthalmologist, occupational therapist, and social worker. This team can help with resources, strategies, and devices to maximize your vision.
