What Is AMD?

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a condition that leads to the loss of central vision, which is crucial for things like reading and recognizing faces. This visual impairment occurs as the macula, the central portion of the retina, deteriorates or is damaged by new, abnormal blood vessels. Unfortunately, once symptoms of AMD appear, the damage done is permanent, which is why early detection through annual eye exams is so important. AMD primarily affects individuals as they age, making it a more common disease in elderly clients.

Symptoms of AMD

If you are experiencing the following symptoms, it is important that you book an appointment with your eye doctor as soon as possible:

  • Blurry or fuzzy vision
  • Difficulty recognizing faces
  • Straight lines appear wavy
  • A dark, empty area or blind spot
  • Loss of central vision
