Macular Degeneration: Treatment & Drugs

Treatments for Macular Degeneration

If you are diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), you need to see your eye doctor regularly to determine how quickly your disease is progressing. Your doctor can:

  • Tell you how to control risk factors for AMD
  • Show you how to use the Amsler grid, a simple method by which you can regularly monitor and detect any subtle changes in your vision on your own

At the first sign of any visual changes—no matter how small they may seem—you should make an appointment with your eye care provider.
