Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a breakdown of the eye's macula, which is a small area in the retina — the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. The macula is the part of the retina that is responsible for your central vision, allowing you to see fine details clearly. Macular Degeneration causes can include the formation of deposits called drusen under the retina,or the growth of abnormal blood vessels under the retina. Learn more about AMD here.
