Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration (amd)


What is wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD)?

Wet AMD is a very serious form of AMD and is a major cause of vision loss in adults. Wet AMD occurs when:

- Blood vessels in the back of the eye grow abnormally
- As the blood vessels grow, they leak blood and fluid, which damage the macula
- This leakage can cause scarring to the retina, damage to the macula, and loss of central vision

Are you or someone you love living with wet AMD?

Wet AMD doesn't happen overnight. Symptoms include wavy lines, hazy vision, and blurriness. You should get an eye exam as soon as you notice any of these symptoms. If you think you or someone you love may be showing signs of AMD, see an eye doctor immediately as an early diagnosis is key.
