Previous Next 6 of 8 Vision with macular degeneration

Depending on the type, age-related macular degeneration might cause:

  • Visual distortions, such as straight lines seeming bent
  • A general haziness in your overall vision
  • A well-defined blurry spot or blind spot in your vision

If you notice changes in your central vision or other signs and symptoms of age-related macular degeneration, see your eye doctor. There's no treatment to reverse dry macular degeneration, but a healthy diet and nutritional supplements might slow progression of the condition. Surgery also might be an option. Treatment options for wet macular degeneration might include medication, laser therapy or low-vision rehabilitation.
