In brief: No
Amd occurs in the retina, specifically the macula of the eye.
It is not related to the cornea or corneal infection.

In brief: Unrelated
Corneal illness usually is isolated from amd which is in the retina at the back of the eye.
A corneal infection or abcess needs treatment but does not cause any changes of the retina.
