What Is Macular Degeneration?

Macular degeneration is a chronic eye disorder that damages the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for sharp vision. It leads to progressive vision loss, particularly in the central field of vision. There are two forms: dry (atrophic) and wet (neovascular). Age is a primary risk factor.
