In brief: Decreased vision

Both the wet and dry forms of armd cause decrease in central vision.
Distortion is often an early symptom and an amsler grid is a good self screening tool. Vision loss from the dry form is usually slowly progressive and lessor in degree than the wet form which can have very dramatic decrease in vision that is rapid and significant.
