Macular degeneration usually refers to the age-related degenerative changes in the retina that can result in loss of central vision. It is caused by abnormal blood vessel growth (a condition referred to as 'wet' macular degeneration) or atrophy and accumulation of debris ('dry' macular degeneration), both of which damage the macula.
