Early detection is crucial to maintain your vision

Wet Macular Degeneration is a common disease. It affects the macula which is the center of vision inside the eye. It becomes thinner every year. When the vessels have good support the diseases is called Dry Macular Degeneration. When abnormal vessels are formed, the disease is called Wet Macular Degeneration.

Routine checkup for the eyes

There are different medications we can use to treat Wet Macular Degeneration and more are being developed every year for this important disease.

It is very important to have periodic eye exams, stay healthy, not smoke, maintain your ideal weight, exercise, eat correctly, and take vitamins.

We use the most modern equipment to detect microscopic damage, may times before the vision is affected.

Swelling or bleeding in the retina is treated with medications that constrict the vessels. The medications are injected in the eyes without pain using a very fine needle. You may require more than one injection in each eye during your lifetime.
