New Diagnosis

What is difference in wet and dry how do I know which one I have?

  1. This is a question that only your eye doctor can answer. Wet macular degeneration is considered advanced and requires anti vegf injections to slow the progression. There is no treatment for the dry form. Many retinal specialist recommend special eye vitamins called Areds2 that may help slow the progression. Have you received a diagnosis of macular degeneration?

  2. After diagnosis referred to Retina specialist have had 2 visits was already taking the Areds2, he advised 2 per day vs 1 I was taking. Feeling overwhelmed.

    1. it can be overwhelming. At first I didn’t know to take two AREDS2 daily. Please feel free to reach out with questions. Best wishes Sharon Moore advocate
