Frequently asked questions
Dry AMD affects an area at the back of your eye called the macula.
The macula is important for your central vision. This allows you to see shapes and colours clearly, and to read, drive, and see faces.
- Dry AMD is characterized by damage to the macula
- This damage results in dark patches or blind spots
- As you get older the condition can become worse
- The unique design of EyeMax Mono helps you to naturally use the healthier areas of the macula to see more clearly.
- It does this by reducing the blurriness and making a sharper image.
EyeMax Mono is inserted into your eye using a standard procedure
- The procedure is common and the same as that used for removing a cataract and inserting a classical lens
- A small opening will be made to remove your natural lens and replace it with EyeMax Mono
- A local anaesthetic will be used
- You can expect to have the procedure and go home the same day
Your eye should recover from surgery in a few days to weeks. Eye drops may be given to you to use while your eye heals.
Your prescription and the way you use your glasses may change after EyeMax Mono is implanted. Your eye specialist will discuss with you if you will need to use glasses after the procedure. You may need to start using glasses even if you do not use them now.
