A common feature of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the presence of drusen, which are yellow deposits under the retina. They are frequently found in people over age 60 and can be seen by an eye care professional during an eye exam in which the pupils are dilated. Drusen by themselves do not generally cause vision loss, but an increase in their size and/or number increases a person's risk of developing advanced AMD.
