Dry Macular Degernation Treatment
Currently, there is no treatment available that will reverse the loss of vision caused by Dry Macular Degeneration.
The Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) showed that vision loss could be slowed down with certain vitamins in those with Intermediate or worse Dry Macular Degeneration.
