Treatment can help reverse macular degeneration

Macular Degeneration can cause blindness, but if caught early, treatment can help to reverse the process.

There are two types of Macular Degeneration. The more common is dry form and the more severe is wet form.

Advanced treatment, including injections by needle once every four to eight weeks, can help. There are also several new drugs on the market that can reduce those injections to once or twice per year.

Doctors warn, if you can't see clearly, don't wait too long to go to the doctor.
