Symptoms of Adult Macular Degeneration


In some people, AMD advances very slowly. It has little effect on their vision. In others, the disease progresses faster. It may lead to significant vision loss. Both dry and wet AMD cause no pain.

Symptoms include:

  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty seeing details in front of you, such as faces or words in a book
  • Blurred vision that goes away in brighter light
  • A small, but growing blind spot in the middle of the field of vision
  • Straight lines (eg, door frames) appear crooked or distorted
