Dry AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration)


Dry AMD is the most common form of macular degeneration. When there are yellow deposits in the macula, called drusen, it can indicate that you may have dry AMD.  Small deposits on the macula may not indicate anything; however it is when they are larger in size that it can become a problem. In addition, pigmentation changes can also indicate a problem. One sign that may suggest you have dry AMD is a decrease in vision.
