Background: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that can blur the sharp, central vision you need for activities like reading and driving. “Age-related” means that it often happens in older people. “Macular” means it affects a part of your eye called the macula. Settings and Design: AMD is a common condition – it's a leading cause of vision loss for people age 50 and older. AMD doesn't cause complete blindness, but losing your central vision can make it harder to see faces, drive, or do close up work like cooking or fixing things around the house. Methods: AMD happens very slowly in some people. Even if you have early AMD, you may not experience vision loss for a long time. For other people, AMD progresses faster and can lead to central vision loss in one eye or both eyes. Conclusion: The present article aims to summarize the current knowledge on AMD its incidence, visual acuity, and risk factors
