Advanced Macular
Degeneration Treatment
in Salt Lake City, Utah

Macular degeneration is a common cause of vision loss in older adults, but Standard Optical is here to help you see clearly now and in the long run. We offer the area’s most thorough eye exams to catch and start managing this disease well before it negatively affects your eyesight or daily life.

What is Age-Related Macular Degeneration?

Age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, is an eye disease caused by a damaged macula — a part of the eye responsible for central vision. Natural aging processes can put the macula at risk, meaning people over 50 years old are more likely to develop AMD; other risk factors include smoking, fatty diets, high blood pressure, and hypertension. As AMD progresses, loss of central sight hinders your ability to see fine details and vivid colors, making everyday tasks like reading and driving much more difficult.
What is AMD
Types of AMD

Types of AMD

The two primary types of AMD are dry and wet. Dry AMD is the most common, and it gradually develops as the macula thins with time, typically over several years. Meanwhile, wet AMD is caused by abnormal blood vessels leaking fluid into the macula, leading to more sudden eyesight loss. While dry AMD shows no symptoms early on, late-stage dry AMD and wet AMD can cause headaches, blurry central vision, distorted vision, and blind spots.

Are You Experiencing:

Distortion in a specific spot of your visual field?

There is a new manager, Erika. The prior manager (Jessica) and front desk person (Jovana) who made serious mistakes with a redo of my lens order are gone. This is a review of a short interaction with Erika and three times with the lab. So based on prior experiences with two people (the old manager and front desk person) this was going to be a 2 or 3 star review because they had messed up a redo of my lens order but now I have to revise what I was going to talk about. If you get frames/lenses at any of the stores they will be sent to this location which is where the lab is that puts them together. You can also come in person and pay an extra fee to wait while the lab completes your order then. My review of the lab is 5 stars! I just needed new lenses for my existing frames which are 25 years old. You have to sign a form absolving them of responsibility if the frames are damaged when they put in the lenses. I’ve never had a problem in the past with other labs and my old frames. Turns out due to mistakes with my initial order, the redo order, and the prescription redo order, I had to go to this store/lab three times. But each time they did a great job and my frames were fine! And I only had to pay the extra fee once. The turnaround time while I waited was about an hour or less.
