Macular degeneration is the leading cause of severe vision loss in people over age 60. It occurs
when the small central portion of the retina, known as the macula, deteriorates. Because the
disease develops as a person ages, it is often referred to as age-related macular degeneration
(AMD). There are two main types of age-related macular degeneration: Wet macular
degeneration and dry macular degeneration.
