What is the difference between wet and dry AMD?

Dry AMD affects 85% of AMD patients and results from the breakdown of light-sensing cells and tissues in retina, which are located in the back of the eye. Individuals with dry AMD will lose their vision at a slower rate than those with wet AMD, but dry AMD may continue to progress to legal blindness.

Wet AMD is a type of AMD where new blood vessels form in the eye and damage vision. Progression of vision loss is quick if left alone, but treatments exist to stop the development of these new blood vessels.
