What are the Types of Macular Degeneration?

There are two main types of macular degeneration:

  • Dry Macular Degeneration: This type is more common and occurs when the macula thins over time as part of the aging process, gradually blurring central vision.
  • Wet Macular Degeneration: Less common but more severe, wet AMD happens when abnormal blood vessels grow under the retina and leak fluids or blood, causing rapid damage and vision loss.
