Treatment of macular degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration is a progressive disorder and it has no definitive treatment. It seems to be an incurable eye disorder. However, extensive research is being done regarding genetic replacement therapy and stem cell transplantation, which may help in treating this disorder. In fact, laser therapy may be considered to impede leakage of blood from the small blood vessels of the eyes. Alternatively, a surgical approach may also be done to translocate the macula to a healthier part of the retina.

Rehabilitation centres for such patients are available where individuals are being trained in the use of low-vision devices and computer software. It is also important to educate the patients regarding the disorder, their subsequent therapies and support centres, in order to help them to cope better and lead an enhanced quality of life.
