Treatment for macular degeneration

Is there a treatment for dry macular degeneration?

There is no cure for dry macular degeneration, however studies have shown that diet and lifestyle changes, including supplementation with natural carotenoids and vitamins may slow down the progression of the disease.

Saffron eye health supplement is a natural solution with nutrients and vitamins to help you maintain eyesight and support eye health:

According to recent research: “…saffron activates mechanisms of self-defense and self-repair in the retina of the eye, protecting it against oxidative damage. Saffron restores some of the lost vision, and then stabilizes retina against further degeneration, which is the classic cause of development and progression of AMD.”

Any changes to diet or lifestyle should be undertaken in consultation with the doctor.

Is there a treatment for wet macular degeneration?

Treatments options in form of prescription medications injected into the eye exist only for wet form of AMD. The treatment may prevent severe vision loss or slow the progression of the disease considerably. These treatments do not cure the disease but aim to stabilize and maintain the best vision for as long as possible Several treatment options are available, including:

Anti-angiogenic drugs such as Lucentis® (ranibizumab), Eylea® (aflibercept) and Avastin® (bevacizumab). The choice of the most appropriate drug should be discussed with your eye specialist.
