Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as macular degeneration in your family — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

→ Yes, in more than one family member
Children and young people can suffer from an inherited form of macular degeneration called macular dystrophy. Sometimes several members of a family will suffer from this, and if this is the case in your family it is very important that you have your eyes checked regularly.
Those with diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of vision problems should have a yearly eye examination.
