MEye Health is excited to be a provider of MacuMira! MacuMira is a clinically proven and Health Canada-approved treatment option that can provide hope for those seeking to slow the progression of dry AMD and potentially improve their vision.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of vision loss in adults over 50. Dry AMD, the most common form, can gradually steal your central vision, making it difficult to see faces, read, or perform daily tasks.

Through MacuMira, our team aims to provide provides with new solutions that may help halt the progression of AMD and help them enjoy clear vision. 

Contact us to schedule your appointment today and discuss if MacuMira is right for you.

Understanding Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

There are 2 main forms of AMD, dry and wet. Dry AMD, the most common form, develops slowly. The macula, responsible for sharp central vision, thins and accumulates drusen (yellow deposits), causing blurred or distorted central vision.

Some symptoms to watch out for include: 

  • Blurred central vision, especially for reading
  • Difficulty seeing in low light
  • Straight lines appear wavy
  • Faded colours

Early detection is key with AMD.

What Is MacuMira?

MacuMira is a safe and noninvasive treatment that uses microcurrent stimulation to target the retinal cells in your eye. This gentle stimulation is designed to help:

  • Improve blood flow and nourish the macula, the central area responsible for sharp, central vision.
  • Stimulate the production of essential cellular components that promote retinal health.
  • Enhance the function of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), a layer crucial for removing waste products from the macula.

We know our patients may have more questions, so feel free to contact our team today for more information.

Benefits of MacuMira Treatment

MacuMira treatment can potentially offer several potential benefits for individuals with dry AMD, including:

  • Slowing the progression of vision loss: Treatment may help preserve your remaining vision and prevent further deterioration.
  • Improved visual acuity:  Some patients experience an improvement in central vision, allowing for clearer reading and sharper focus.
  • Enhanced contrast sensitivity:  The ability to distinguish between light and dark may be improved, making daily activities easier.

This process can help slow down the degenerative process and improve visual acuity.

What to Expect During Your MacuMira Treatment

MacuMira treatment is designed to be a simple and comfortable process. Here’s what you can expect:

  • You’ll be comfortably seated in an examination chair.
  • A specialized headset will be placed on your head, gently directing microcurrent stimulation to your eyes while closed.
  • Each treatment session typically lasts for 15 minutes.
  • The recommended treatment plan typically involves multiple sessions spaced over a specific timeframe, followed by maintenance treatments as needed.

Is MacuMira Right for You?

MacuMira is a safe and effective option for individuals diagnosed with dry AMD in the early to intermediate stages. Our team at MEye Health will conduct a comprehensive eye exam to determine if MacuMira could be the right treatment for you.
