Aged macular degeneration treatment
Wet AMD treatments
Immediate treatment is recommended for wet AMD in order to prevent complete loss of vision. Consider the following treatments for this condition.
- Photo dynamic therapy
Photo dynamic therapy uses a light sensitive drug and a laser to treat this condition. When the drug re-acts with the targeted laser it will seal off new and leaking blood vessels to help prevent further vision loss.
- Anti-VEGF medication
Anti-VEGF medication is a treatment for wet aged macular degeneration. VEGF stands for vascular endothelial growth factor. If you have this treatment, the ophthalmologist will anaesthetise your eye and then inject the drug into your eye with a delicate needle.
