Age Related Macular Degeneration - or AMD - is an eye disease that causes loss of central vision, leaving only peripheral, or side, vision intact. It usually does not lead to total blindness, but rather may cause foggy or blurred central vision and varying degrees of usable peripheral vision. Whether you have the more common "dry" (or early) form of AMD, or the more severe (late stage) "wet" form, it is important to know the facts about AMD and what you can do to make the most of your sight. Information on early detection, timely treatment, comprehensive rehabilitation and support services, as well as new prevention suggestions have been provided on this website to help you.
