Abstract: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of severe visual loss among persons ≥ 60 years. AMD can be categorized in one of three stages: early, intermediate, or late. In early AMD visual symptoms are inconspicuous whereas, in the late stage, severe loss of vision is common. Late AMD has dry and wet forms. Wet AMD is a chronic disease with episodes of exacerbation, with varying intervals between relapses. The sooner a new episode of disease activity is discovered and ... more
