What AMD means to you
A diagnosis of age-related macular degeneration doesn’t necessarily mean you will experience a complete loss of vision. AMD can, however, mean changes in everyday life. A significant loss of central vision can make activities like reading, driving, and watching television very difficult. But since peripheral vision isn’t directly affected by macular degeneration, independent living should still be possible with the help of visual aids and rehabilitation.
