Age Related Macular Degeneration

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Age-related macular degeneration is an eye disease that can begin at any age, but usually develops after age 60. This eye condition progressively destroys your macula, which is the central portion of the retina.

There are two types: wet and dry. In wet macular degeneration, abnormal blood vessels behind the retina start to grow, leaking blood and fluid, causing loss of central vision. Treatment consists of injections to stop or slow the leakage. In dry macular degeneration, the light-sensitive cells in the macula slowly break down causing central vision to diminish over time. Treatment consists of special vitamins to slow the process.
