Macular Degeneration or AMD
Age-related Macular Degeneration (most often called Macular Degeneration or AMD) is an eye disorder related to aging. Symptoms are usually associated with the loss of sharp and central vision. This affects seeing things clearly for common tasks such as reading, driving, walking, or anything else where your eye needs to see fine detail. There are several types of AMD, Wet AMD and Dry AMD. Symptoms can range from loss of central vision, distortion of lines, and loss of vision clarity.
Estimates put the number of people with AMD to reach 2.95 million by 2020. AMD is the major cause of permanent vision impairment with regards to reading and/or close-up or detailed vision requirements.
