What Is AMD?

Age-related macular degeneration is a condition that damages the part of your eyes that plays a critical role in controlling central vision, known as the macula, which is located in the center of your retina. The macula is incredibly delicate, meaning any damage caused to it — and any potential vision loss from it — is permanent, making it important to catch the signs of AMD early.

What Are the Potential Signs of AMD?

AMD has a number of indicators, but you may not notice you have it until vision loss has already occurred. If you notice any of the following symptoms or problems, schedule an eye exam with your eye doctor as soon as possible.

  • Blurriness, particularly in your central vision
  • Visual distortions, such as straight lines appearing curvy or wavy
  • Issues seeing in low light
  • Duller colors
  • Increased dependence on brighter light for close up work
  • Difficulty recognizing faces
  • Blind spots in your field of vision
