Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Age-related macular degeneration is found in two forms 1. Dry early form. 2. Wet (serous leakage or whole blood). Early dry form typically has drusen (>63u) and RPE degeneration and only needs periodic follow-ups, intermediate dry form has large drusen (>125u) and RPE degeneration and proliferation which requires examinations every 3 to 6 months depending on the severity of the presentation.
