Is there any treatment for age related macular degeneration (AMD)?

Unfortunately, at the moment there is no way to treat dry AMD.

Wet AMD has a group of medications called anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) drugs available as a treatment on the NHS. As new blood vessels form in your eye, your body produces a chemical which encourages further new blood vessel growth. Anti-VEGF drugs interfere with this chemical and stop the vessels from growing, preventing further damage to your sight.

For further information on AMD see What is age related macular degeneration (AMD)? and I've just been diagnosed with age related macular degeneration (AMD), what happens next?
