Wet Age Related Macular Degeneration

Wet Age Related Macular Degeneration

About 10% of people who have macular degeneration have the wet form, but it can cause more damage to your central or detail vision than the dry form.

Wet macular degeneration occurs when abnormal blood vessels begin to grow underneath the retina. This blood vessel growth is called choroidal neovascularization (CNV) because these vessels grow from the layer under the retina called the choroid. These new blood vessels may leak fluid or blood, blurring or distorting central vision. Vision loss from this form of macular degeneration may be faster and more noticeable than that from dry macular degeneration.

Wet Macular Degeneration Treatment

The earlier that wet macular degeneration is diagnosed and treated, the better chance you have of preserving some or much of your central vision.

Treating the wet form of macular degeneration may involve the use of anti-VEGF treatment, thermal laser treatment. Treatment of wet macular degeneration generally reduces but does not eliminate the risk of severe vision loss.

VIEW ALLWhat Our Patients Say

Like looking through a misty pane, Everything seems drab and grey, Then Mr. Golchin's skillful hands, Opened the door to a clearer land. Dust and cobwebs, now I see, Passing spiders wink at me! Wrinkles on my face and neck - Heavens above - I look a wreck! But I can see bright colours, Little birds upon the trees And hills and distant valleys, That for long evaded me. How wonderful the advances made in medical R and D, And Mr. Golchin's gifted hand, That restored good spirit to me.

P. Barry
