Are Eye Floaters A Sign Of Macular Degeneration - AMD?
Eye floaters are typically not a sign of macular degeneration, however the two conditions frequently occur
The overwhelming majority of people who suffer from eye floaters or "eye floaties" have the
so called benign or harmless variety, which do no damage to the vision. Almost all patients have this form of
floater and they describe them as black strings in their vision, or little dots and squiggly lines that move and
change location and as you move your head they seem to move with you.
Likewise, about 90% of individuals with macular degeneration have the less severe form called dry amd, and only
10% have the bleeding or "wet" form of macular degeneration.
