ARMD (Age-related macular degeneration) is a common cause of old age reduced vision. It always relates to the name of aged patients who has these problem.
ARMD usually gets these old folks down in their visions and rarely get them to complete lost of vision.
Retina which is situated at the back of the eye, sends the images that we see to the brain. Retina has two main parts which is called the macula and the peripheral retina. The macula is responsible for seeing fine detail, such as reading, seeing facial features and differentiate colour. This part of the retina that is affected by these Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) problem.
ARMD (Age-related macular degeneration) Development
ARMD cause: Aging wear and tear changes in the Yin and the Qi system of your eyes and muscles. All these damages the cells over a period of time and may cause this ARMD.
ARMD (Age-related macular degeneration) -Risk of age-related retinal degeneration
ARMD usually attacks people who are over 60 years of age. Some younger people may be also in a higher risk if you are very short-sighted.
ARMD (Age-related macular degeneration) - Different types of macular degeneration
ARMD types: Dry and Wet Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) are the two most common type of Age-related macular degeneration.
Dry Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) development
More commonly is that ARMD comes slowly and affects 2 eyes are the same, cause there are from the wear and tear of the Qi system and Yin system of the eyes.
Wet Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD)
Wet ARMD is less common but more serious and faster in effecting on the central area of vision. Blood vessels from outer layer at the back of the eye grow in an abnormal condition into the macular area. Then the blood vessels may bleed and cause a rapid and blur vision in central retina eyes. This usually affects one eyes and then slowly affects the second one.
ARMD (Age-related macular degeneration) Symptoms
DryAge-related macular degeneration (ARMD) causes a gradual reduction in central vision. This tends to affect the ability to read and to see fine detail more than distance vision.
The first symptoms of wet Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) may be distortion of vision (known as metamorphopsia). This often has the effect of making straight lines appear curved or tilted. The vision deteriorates and eventually the central vision may be completely lost leaving a dark central area of poor vision (known as a central scotoma).
ARMD (Age-related macular degeneration) - Macular: a cause of blindness
ARMD (Age-related macular degeneration) is a common cause of partial sight or blind registration in the developed world. If you suffer from age-related macular degeneration your ophthalmologist may have arranged to register you as blind. This does not mean that you are blind or are going to go blind. It means that the central vision has been affected such that you are having difficulty with your vision which needs to be recognised. The peripheral (side) vision is always retained which ensures that the majority of people with this condition are still able to maintain good mobility and independence.
There are more complications from aging problems like Rheumatism, wind pain, weakness of both legs, aged diabetes, aged heart complications, white hair, hormonal problems, easy tired, memory problems, weak kidney and others organ's Qi, etc, etc.
Vision tends to get worst slowly and may lose vision.
ARMD may well be regard as old age problem and these may be relates to the weakness of Qi system of the 5 organs of Yin and Yang.
