Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

What is age-related macular degeneration?

Macular Degeneration or Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a gradual, progressive, painless deterioration of the macula. It is the leading cause of vision loss and partial blindness in 60+ years old in the U.S. AMD is referred to as such because it slowly develops as a person ages. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, it’s estimated that 10-15 million people in the U.S have AMD.
