Does treating wet AMD cure it?

ANSWER

Sometimes, even after you get treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration, the condition can come back. Test your vision regularly and follow the recommendations of your doctor. The right treatment not only slows your vision loss, but it can improve your vision.
