Central Scotomas

Eye diseases that cause central scotomas (blind spots) include age-related macular degeneration (also know as age-related maculopathy, macular degeneration, AMD or ARMD), Stargardt’s disease and cone dystrophy. Unlike photographs that show a clear image with a dark spot in the center, these simulators show a visual periphery that is fogged, while the blind spot is white and opaque. Often, fully-sighted users are surprised to discover how easily they can move about in a well lit environment while, at the same time, have a great deal of trouble reading print or recognizing faces.

Did you know…?

  • Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of low vision in the developed world.
  • The greatest risk factor for AMD is age. Other risk factors include smoking, family history, obesity and race. Caucasians are more likely to lose vision from AMD.
  • Stargardt’s disease is a hereditary disorder (autosomal recessive) that affects about 25,000 people in the US alone.
