World-class Macular Degeneration care – right on your doorstep

How Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) effects our vision

Age-Related Macular Degeneration is not painful. At its earlier stages, central vision might become blurred or distorted. A feature of Wet AMD, in particular, is that straight lines may also appear wavy or crooked. As AMD becomes more severe a blank patch or dark spot might appear in the central vision. This makes reading, writing and recognising small objects difficult.

AMD affects only the central retina, whilst the side (peripheral) vision remains efficient;

The condition generally affects both eyes, although the rate of decline between each eye may vary considerably.
