Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Unfortunately, there is no way to "stop" dry ARMD. The vitamins, as recommended by the AREDS study, are the only known effective treatment. While this does not reverse damage already done it has been shown to slow the progression of the disease.
Does this make sense to you?
Also, I suggest you see an ophthalmologist (MD), and not an optometrist, for your routine eye care.
how about treatment with stem cells, is it recommended
There has been some very exciting research with stem cells in getting some people who are lights out blind do to a specific disease to see some light again....and the press has widely reported on this.
That being said, we are a long, long way from using stems cell therapy in the routine treatment of eye diseases, including dry ARMD
does it work for AMD
which center in USA is suited for this research
No. Stem cell therapy is still in its infancy.....it has not been used in any type of macular degeneration yet
