About 10% of patients with macular degeneration have the "wet" form of the disease.  In wet macular degeneration, abnormal blood vessels leak fluid or blood into spaces beneath the retina.  The accummulated fluid damages the the retina and the structural damage results in a loss of vision.

In wet macular degeneration, early diagnosis is critical because modern treatment options can reduce or prevent permanent vision loss if they are administered early in the course of the disease.
