Age Related Macular Degeneration Radio Advertising

AMD occurs later in life and is an increasingly common disorder affecting people over the age of 60.  AMD disturbances occur in the mascular area causing problems with the centre of the vision.  There is no specific medical treatment for most cases but new symptoms of distortion or sudden deterioration of vision need to be assessed immediately as treatment can sometimes be of benefit.  On the radio you may have heared about age related macular degeneration radio advertising.

Dry AMD : cells at the back of the eye become less efficient at doing their job and waste products accumulate (drusen).  90%  this type.

Wet AMD : The vision loss in wet AMD  is caused by the growth of abnormal leaky blood vessels that eventually damage the area of the eye responsible for central vision.  Blood vessels develop under the macula and begin to leak fluid or blood.  This causes blurred vision or misshapen lines.  If the blood vessels are not directly in the absolute center of the eye it is possible for doctors to use laser treatment called Photodynamic Therapy to try to get rid of these blood vessels.

  3. I know about the severeness of the disease. So I recommend to take macular degeneration treatment by stem cells therapy. At least it helps to get one back the level of an individual's lifestyle. So I think, it's great.
