Left: Retina of patient with “dry” age-related macular degeneration, showing drusen (yellow spots) in the macula. Right: Retina of same patient months later, showing progression to “wet” degeneration, with fresh blood under the macula and greatly reduced central vision. These images emphasize the importance of taking every possible step to avoid progression from dry to wet macular degeneration. | Rosario Bate, Director of Ophthalmic Photography, University of Ottawa Eye Institute
