Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of blindness affecting those 50 years or older. AMD is a chronic eye condition that often results in vision loss in the centre of the visual field because of damage to the macula (the central part of the retina). Some of this vision loss may be permanent or irreversible.
This condition may make it difficult for the patient to read, recognise faces or drive safely, because we rely on our central vision for these tasks. However, peripheral vision remains intact for most people, allowing them to remain independent for most daily activities.
