AMD is a degeneration of the central portion of the retina called the macula that occurs in older age. This is the part of the retina that we use for central vision – to read and see faces, so people who suffer from AMD usually find that reading becomes difficult, colours become less vibrant and faces are more difficult to recognise. It can occur suddenly but most people experience a slow change in their vision, with one eye more affected than the other. If you find that your vision is becoming poorer, visit your optometrist who can easily check for signs of AMD.
