macular degenerations is a condition in which there is some problem in the form of abnormal vessels in the macular area for central and peri central region..till date we don'nt have specific medicine for its eradication ..we have some medicines -like avestin,, which is generally very useful..but not 100%..because the effect is temporary..therefor we hv to repeat at frequent interwals...and its a costly too.
by god's grace..i hope u should be benefitted..and will be assessed by the doc and by repeating the tests like fluoroscein angiography and OCT..
go for regular follow up as the doc says..
i hope u will be fine soon..
