All your answers are correct. Read the full answer

Abnormality is the dark grey streaks with irregular edges that seem to be underlying the retina. These are due to breaks in the Bruch's membrane of the retina. It is symptomless in 30% of cases; however 70% are having reduction in the visual acuity due to involvement of the fovea by the streaks per se, a choriodal rupture, or a hemorrhagic detachment of the fovea, or choroidal neovascularization and its complications. It is seen in Paget's disease of the bone, sickle cell disease, Ehler Danlons syndrome, and pseudoxanthoma elasticum. Up to 50% of angiod streaks are idiopathic.
