Age-Related Macular Degeneration - Other Treatment

Studies are being done on possible other treatments for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), such as:

  • Surgery to remove or repair parts of the eye involved in AMD. For example, electronic implants and other devices may be able to help restore lost vision.
  • Stem cell therapy to create healthier cells in the damaged part of your eye.

You can talk with your doctor about the progress of new potential treatments and also look into clinical trials.
