Macular Degeneration Treatment

Geneva Eye Clinic offers macular degeneration treatment for the retinal degenerative disease that causes progressive loss of central vision. The risk of developing macular degeneration increases with age. The disease most often affects people in their sixties and seventies. Age-related macular degeneration is the most common cause of vision loss in people over age 55.

There are two types of age-related macular degeneration AMD, atrophic (dry) and exudative (wet). Exudative AMD occurs when abnormal blood vessels grow underneath the retina. These unhealthy vessels leak blood and fluid, which can scar the macula. Macular degeneration treatment is available for exudative AMD in the form of intravitreal injections.
