Are there any new treatments for AMD?

Age-related macular degeneration is one of the greatest challenges in ophthalmology today. We know that there are two types: the dry form and the wet form. The dry form is experienced by patients who are slowly losing their vision. It has been demonstrated that treatment with antioxidants and vitamins can reduce vision loss, although the slowing down of the process is not particularly spectacular. The wet form, which is so called because fluid is produced in the macula, is the most destructive, and current treatment involves the combining of photodynamic therapy, which started to be used some years ago, with other treatments, which has produced more positive results. Each year, new possibilities appear, which help in the fight against this disease.
