Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Macular Degeneration & Treatment Options

Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of vision loss. The central part of the retina (the macula) is damaged, causing blurriness and distortion of the central vision. The exact cause is unknown.

Great strides have been made in treatment of this condition in the last ten years, but no treatment is uniformly effective. Early recognition and treatment of macular degeneration may reduce the possibility of severe visual loss.

Different Types Of Macular Degeneratio

The two most common types of AMD are “dry” (atrophic) and “wet” (exudative). The dry form is more common. It is caused by aging and thinning of the tissues of the macula. Visual loss is gradual. The wet form accounts for about 10% of all cases of macular degeneration. Abnormal blood vessels underneath the retina in the back of the eye leak fluid and blood into the macula, causing severe damage. Visual loss in these cases can be much more rapid and severe.
