Welcome to the AMD Symptom Checker. Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a progressive eye disease that affects the macula at the back of the eye, which is responsible for central vision and allows you to see detail. AMD is the leading cause of sight
loss in Ireland for those over 50*.
Please use this AMD Symptom Checker to help you to understand some of the symptoms of AMD. If you notice any changes in your eyesight or experience any symptoms, please see an eye care specialist immediately. The AMD symptom checker is not intended to
be used to diagnose AMD or to replace either an eye test or medical advice.
