Case studies: Adult Vitelliform Macular Dystrophy (AVMD)

Classic egg yolk appearance of AVMD. This looks like a single round central drusen in each eye. Best’s disease looks similar, however the egg yolk appearance degenerates in patients during teenage years, whereas in AVMD it degenerates around the age of 60-70. Vision is also usually about 6/9 in AVMD, compared with 6/60 in Best’s disease.
