What Is Wet AMD?

Age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, is one of the leading causes of vision loss among adults aged 60 or older. Although wet AMD is less common than dry AMD, it accounts for nearly all vision loss associated with AMD.

This video explains how wet AMD affects your eyesight over time. As small blood vessels grow underneath the retina of your eye, changes in your central vision occur. These blood vessels can cause permanent scarring and loss of eyesight. If you notice any changes in your vision, have them evaluated by your optometrist to address the underlying cause.
