A Fluorescein Angiography is a medical procedure in which a fluorescent dye is injected into the bloodstream. The dye highlights the blood vessels in the back of the eye so they can be photographed. This test is often used to manage eye disorders.
Macular degeneration occurs in the macula, which is the part of the eye that allows you to focus on fine detail. Sometimes, the disorder worsens so slowly that you may not notice any change at all. In some people, it causes vision to deteriorate rapidly and blindness in both eyes may occur.
Because the disease destroys your focused, central vision, it prevents you from:
- seeing objects clearly
- watching television
