A: AMD causes subtle vision loss, resulting in few noticeable early symptoms. The first symptom is usually blurriness in the centre of your vision. For wet AMD, an early symptom is the waving of straight lines. The condition progressively causes blurriness overcome by dark spots, causing central vision loss in severe cases. Due to the tenuous nature of early-stage AMD, routine eye examinations, conducted by Dr. Conlon and associated Retinal Specialists, are essential for detection.
