What is Age-Related Macular Degeneration?

Age-related macular degeneration, also known as AMD, is an eye disease that directly affects the macula of your eye. AMD is a term coined to describe a two eye diseases patients can experience: Dry AMD and Wet AMD

For the most part, AMD tends to affect people around or above the age of 50, yet symptoms can start showing at younger ages. The disease affects the macula, the center part of your retina which is responsible for central vision. As the disease progresses, patients can experience difficulty reading, driving, or even recognizing faces.

Types of AMD

Dry AMD occurs when lipids, known as drusen, start to form underneath the macula, degenerating the tissue as your eye ages. Dry AMD is the most common compared to its counterpart and can be symptoms can be mitigated with early detection.

Wet AMD is not as common, but can be far more serious. Wet AMD occurs when delicate blood vessels start to form underneath the macula, often leaking blood and other fluids. These fluids then damage the macula, causing problems to your central vision.

Wet AMD happens much more suddenly and causes a rapid deterioration of central vision. If you start to see problems start to occur to your central vision, contact your optometrist immediately.
