Symptoms of Age-related Macular Degeneration?
The early stages of AMD produce very few specific symptoms. It is often diagnosed when patients visit a specialist because they are experiencing a loss of visual acuity.
People with AMD can have:
Slightly blurred central vision.
Diffuse or cloudy central vision worsening as the disease advances.
Spotty or distorted vision making it difficult to read, drive or recognise familiar faces.
Straight lines may appear wavy.
Difficulty distinguishing textures or differentiating colours.
Difficulty adjusting to changes in lighting.
A need for more light to carry out daily tasks.
A loss of depth perception.
If you experience an accelerated and/or sudden decline or a loss of vision, then you should visit an ophthalmologist (eye specialist) as soon as possible.
