It is an eye disorder that can steadily destroy the macula in the center of the retina and impair central vision. It usually occurs after the age of 60 and rarely leads to blindness because it only affects the central image. However, injury to the macula can make it difficult to perform activities that require excellent central vision, such as reading, driving, etc. There are two types of disease classified by the nature of the damage; dry and wet.
