In dimly lit room, I see a dark large spot that is steadily increasing in size. Is this a symptom of my dry macular degeneration?
It is possible that this can be a manifestation of either wet or dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD). It is important to see your ophthalmologist or a retina specialist to have this evaluated.
