Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of vision loss
for adults over 60. Its victims live with a large blurry or blind spot
at the center of their field of vision, making basic everyday activities
— reading, driving, navigating stairs — agonizingly difficult.
Our speaker is
Dr. Geeta Lalwani, who has more than 10 years experience in successfully treating retina-related
eye conditions. She will describe the many treatment options available
for wet macular degeneration, one of two types of AMD. Then learn about
upcoming treatments for dry macular degeneration.
