What are the symptoms of AMD?
Mild AMD may have no symptoms at all. Usually the first symptoms people notice are:
- finding it harder to see detail
- finding it harder to read small print even with your reading glasses
- straight lines looking wavy or distorted
- a slight smudge or blurred area in the centre of your vision
AMD can lead to significant and severe loss of central vision. However, most people do not lose all their sight as peripheral vision is maintained.
