IS THERE TREATMENT FOR MACULA DEGENERATION?

Currently there are injections (not as bad as it sounds) available for wet AMD. In Scotland the normal referral process is through your optician. There is no current treatment for dry AMD, but there are steps you can take to try to stabilise, or protect yourself from it:

- have regular eye examinations

- don't smoke

- protect your eyes against UV light

- eat well- coloured fruit and vegetables in particular
