Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye condition which affects the macula – a tiny portion of your retina located at the back of your eye. This degenerative eye disease is the leading cause of legal blindness and vision loss in Americans above the age of 65. The macula is primarily responsible for sharp, central vision that helps you read, watch television or drive. Age-related macular degeneration breaks down the macula that in turn results in blurry and distorted central vision while peripheral vision might still be intact. This disease alone does not cause total blindness though it is still the major cause of irreversible vision loss in senior patients.
