I'm currently 24 years old and have been having trouble with one of my eyes for as long as I can remember. I haven't worried about it much until recently after I noticed it has gotten worse over the past few years. There's a blind spot almost directly in the center of my vision and it seems to be growing slowly. Sometimes colors are faded and darker in that eye compared to my good one. Straight lines have a squiggle right in the middle of them. I noticed that after I did some research and found out about AMD. It says it's age related but it seems to describe my situation perfectly. I went to the eye doctor a few years back and they told me it was a birth defect and they'd contact me if they could do anything to help it but I haven't heard from them since. I'm currently scheduled to go to a different eye doctor and I have no idea what to expect. It's really scary for me because I have a huge fear of going blind. That's why I came here to maybe get some answers as to what's going on with my eye. Thanks for your time!
