Macular degeneration
« Reply #1 on: July 14, 2011, 03:08:26 PM »

Q: I've been searching for any and all information with regards to macular degeneration as well as any progress made in the field.  My mother is suffering from the "wet" type and I would truly like to find anything that could possibly help her.  I believe there MUST be some sort of advances in treatment, whether as potential cure's, repairs or even to arrest the condition.
A: Macular degeneration is becoming very common as our population ages. There is a tremendous amount of research being done in this area. Unfortuneately, it has not yet translated into a "cure". There are new treatments for wet macular degeneration. They do often prevent slow or prevent further deterioration. Check with a vitreo-retinal specialist in your area.
