Scientists have made great progress over the past several years, and while there is currently no cure for AMD, there are therapies available that can slow the disease or even restore vision!
For dry AMD, taking a specific formulation of antioxidants and zinc may slow the progression of the disease. Click here: for information on the dry form of the disease.
For wet AMD there are medical treatments available that can stop deterioration or even restore some lost vision. Click here: for information on the wet form.
For both the dry and wet form of the disease, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and diet can also slow the progression of macular degeneration. Visit our page on prevention and healthy living for detailed information.
