With macular degeneration, it may be difficult to read a book, locate the edge of a curb, or recognize faces. There are two forms of macular degeneration: dry and wet. The wet form is more severe and requires treatment to help preserve vision.
If fluid isn’t controlled, central vision will gradually get worse, leading to difficulty doing everyday activities such as reading, recognizing faces and driving.
