Macular Degeneration Treatment & Surgery

Macular degeneration is a condition characterized by the deterioration of the central, high real-estate portion of the retina called the macula. The macula is what gives us our sharp central vision. Patients with this disease often note wavy or blurry vision and, in some cases, near total central vision loss.

There are two types of macular degeneration. The dry type is the more common type (~90%) and typically causes a slow visual decline. Yellow hard deposits called drusen are classic for the dry type. The wet type (10%) is characterized by abnormal, leaky blood vessels in the macula.

Intraocular injections are often used to treat the wet type of macular degeneration.  There is no cure for dry macular degeneration, but you can reduce your risk by doing things like eating a healthy diet, exercising, wearing sunglasses, and not smoking.  The AREDS studies showed that a specific formulation of vitamins can reduce the chance of going from the dry to the wet form of macular degeneration. Dr. Miller will help determine if AREDS vitamins, or any other treatment, are right for you.”
