Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss in people aged 50 or older. AMD does not lead to total blindness. It does however affect your central vision and interferes with your everyday tasks, such as reading and recognizing faces. Wet AMD is a less common form of AMD, caused by the growth of abnormal blood vessels at the back of the eyes and build-up of fluid under the retina. Current treatments with eye injections aim to help stop vision getting worse. Omega-3 has proven to better improve vision when combined with eye injections.
Eye injection combined with Omega 3 provide better visual outcome in wet AMD
Patients with Wet AMD were treated with eye injection with or without Omega 3.
