Age-related macular degeneration is an eye condition that affects the cone cells in the retina, which are responsible for central and colored vision. As a result, the initial symptoms of macular degeneration often relate to a person’s central vision. The most common symptoms associated with age related macular degeneration are blurred vision and difficulty distinguishing small details.
As this video explains, macular degeneration frequently develops gradually. This means that people need to pay attention to subtle symptoms, like distortion in everyday objects and tasks becoming increasingly more difficult. This video provides an illustration of what everyday scenes look like with clear vision and with early signs of macular degeneration.
