Video: How does the Age-Related Macular Degeneration treatment work?

In this video I talk about how I undertake the treatment of the different types of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).

If we talk about Age-Related Macular Degeneration as a condition, there are two types: The dry and the wet.

In general, the dry form takes many months – if not years – to develop, to cause problems in the long run. The converse is true of wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration because if you develop that, the symptoms tend to progress quite quickly. Often many of my patients will develop a problem with their vision within a matter of weeks – which is quite noticeable.

If that does happen the best treatment for them is to receive treatment from a qualified ophthalmologist who knows the difference between the types of Macular Degeneration, who can offer them the imaging techniques to diagnose that and then treat it as quickly as possible.

If you come to see me and you have a wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration eye, you will receive treatment on the day – there is no doubt about that – and you will hopefully benefit from that quick response to treatment.

If you want to discuss near that in detail then please ring the number at the end of the video. And we can discuss how we treat your particular condition.
