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.

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.
