Expert:  Dr. James replied 7 years ago.
It appears you are receiving the most advanced treatments we have for macular degeneration. The injections are either with Avastin or Lucentis. Some retina specialist may consider injections of corticosteroids as well. You should continue to take the eye vitamins formulated for macular degeneration such as Preservision or equivalent brand.

Lasers were commonly used years ago, however, injections are superior to lasers because they are able to stabilize vision with minimal scarring. Laser on the other hand will cause scarring.
