What is Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)?

AMD is an eye condition that affects a very small part of the retina located at the back of the eye, called the macula. The macula is about the size of a pin head and its highly-sensitive cells provide our detailed central vision.

With AMD, changes in the macula leads to problems with central vision, for example, when reading, the page may appear distorted then, over time, a blank or dark patch may appear in the middle of your vision.
