Does wet macular degeneration ever go away?

ANSWER

Unfortunately, even after treatment, wet macular degeneration can recur, and you may need more treatments. Because of this, people with the condition must test their own vision regularly and follow the recommendations of their eye doctor. Successful and timely treatment can slow the rate of vision loss and often improve vision.
