Age-related Macular Degeneration
Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a long term condition which is the leading cause of sight loss in the UK. Sight loss often occurs quickly with the exudative (“wet”) form of AMD but can be stabilised or improved in most cases with prompt treatment and timely monitoring. The main objective for an AMD service is to minimise preventable sight loss.
