Wet Macula Degeneration Animation
Age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is the commonest cause of blindness in the Western world in those over 50 years of age. The damage in ARMD principally occurs as a result of wear and tear in the macula.
A person with macular degeneration loses the ability to see fine detail centrally for near and far. There are two types of macula degeneration, dry and wet ARMD. In the dry macula degeneration scar tissue damages the photoreceptors which slowly affect the central vision. In the more dangerous wet degeneration, leaky blood vessels are the main culprit for the damage to the photoreceptors. The animation below explains the process in wet ARMD.
