What are the types of senile macular degeneration ? 

There are two types: 

1. Atrophic or 'dry' type: involving the choriocapillaries, retinal pigment epithelium and the rods and cones. There is no leakage of blood or serum. 

2. Neovascular exudative or 'wet' type: there is haemorrhagic or serous detachment of the retinal pigment epithelium and choroidal neovascularization resulting in leakage and fibrovascular scarring.
