Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease
associated with aging that gradually destroys sharp,
central vision. Central vision is needed for seeing objects
clearly and for common daily tasks such as reading and
AMD affects the macula, the part of the eye that allows you
to see fine detail. AMD causes no pain.
In some cases, AMD advances so slowly that people notic
little change in their vision. In others, the disease
progresses faster and may lead to a loss of vision in both
eyes. AMD is the leading cause of vision loss in Americans
60 years of age and older.
AMD occurs in two forms: wet and dry.
