Hello It seems from the history that you are diagnosed with macular degeneration. The treatment for macular degeneration is by use of anti vascular endothelial growth factors or by laser photocoagulation. The mode of treatment depends on the extent and severity of the macular degeneration. This can be found out by investigations like fundus fluorescein angioraphy.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.
