Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
The most common type of macular degeneration is the “dry” form. In dry macular degeneration, there is progressive thinning (atrophy) and the depositing of waste products (drusen) in the retina. Although vision loss can occur, it is usually minimal and progresses slowly.
The “wet” form of macular degeneration is only responsible for about 10% of macular degeneration cases. With wet AMD, abnormal blood vessels are stimulated to grow beneath the retina. Leakage and bleeding from these abnormal vessels can destroy central vision.
At NJ Retina, we provide our patients with state-of-the-art diagnostic tests and treatments, including surgery related to AMD / Age-Related Macular Degeneration.
