Q: WHAT IS MACULAR DEGENERATION?
Macular degeneration is a serious problem that effects the retina. It is the leading cause of vision loss in the senior population and it is irreversible. Early detection is very important. Advanced macular degeneration (AMD) exists in two types: wet and dry. There is no cure for AMD, but new treatments are available for the wet form of the disease. There is no treatment for the dry form, but training and special devices can promote independence and a return to favorite activities.
