Age-related macular degeneration (AMD or ARMD) or Age-related Maculopathy (ARM) is a condition that involves the degeneration and damage to the central area of the retina - the macula. It is currently a common cause of visual impairment in Western Europe. AMD is typically painless, and the loss of central vision usually occurs in both eyes but may progress at different speeds.
This report provides the current prevalent population for AMD across 7 Major Markets (USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK and Japan) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current prevalence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
Providing a value-added level of insight from the analysis team, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of AMD have been quantified and presented alongside the overall prevalence figures. These sub-populations within the main disease are also included at a country level across the 10-year forecast snapshot.
Main symptoms and co-morbidities for AMD include:
- Serous retinal detachment - Haemorrhage - Charles Bonnet Syndrome - Depression - Reduced quality of life - Hypertension - Hypercholesterolaemia (abdominal obesity is a specific risk factor for males)
