February is Age-Related Macular Degeneration Awareness Month

Age-related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) is the leading cause of blindness among older Americans, but new treatments have dramatically changed the course of this disease over the last 10 years, making ARMD more manageable than ever before. During ARMD Awareness Month in February, optometrists are reminding people with ARMD that they can save their vision thanks to recent treatment advances, but early detection is a critical first step. ┬áPlease schedule your eye appointment today with Dr. Cowger at Blue Ridge Eye Associates by calling (540) 434-EYES (3937) or by emailing Wally at ┬áLet’s save your vision together.
