Macular Degeneration


Age-related macular degeneration is characterized by vision loss in the macula, or central field of vision. There are two versions of the condition, noted as "wet" and "dry." The dry version of ARMD occurs when the photoreceptors, commonly called rods and cones, are lost. The wet version of ARMD occurs when photoreceptors in the macula are damaged due to excessive blood vessel growth, which leads to leaking blood and protein within the eye. ARMD symptoms include missing areas of vision from the central portion of the eye, blurred or distorted images, and impaired color and contrast discernment.
