The main symptom of macular degeneration is impaired vision when looking both at far and close distances. The patient develops problems with reading, and in the final stage the patient has a “black spot” in the middle of vision. Macular degeneration has two forms: dry form and wet form. In case of dry form, waste products of the retinal metabolism (lipid exudates and druses) accumulate in the retina and damage surface epithelium. Wet form is characterised by the growth of new abnormal blood vessels from the choroid layer into retina. These new blood vessels can cause oedema and also haematomas. This decreases visual acuity.
