The purpose of this research study is to determine if photobiomodulation is an effective treatment of Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and vision loss associated with the disease...
This is a randomized controlled study of non-damaging photothermal macular grid laser versus sham laser therapy in patients with dry AMD and large high-risk drusen. The goal of the study i...
The purpose of this study is to look at the safety and effectiveness of CNTF implants on vision in participants with atrophic macular degeneration. This research is being done because the...
In this study, the principle functionality of the device will be tested in humans for the first time. The study will evaluate the extent to which patients with atrophic dry age related mac...
This is a prospective, single-blind, randomized study to evaluate intravitreal aflibercept injection (IAI) versus sham as prophylaxis against conversion to neovascular age-related macular ...
To determine the significance of the correlation between optical coherence tomographic (OCT) findings and focal macular electroretinograms (fmERG) at 12 months after beginning intravitreal injections ...
To demonstrate the advantage of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) for the diagnosis and management of proliferative macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel2) masquerading as neovascular ag...
To investigate the relationship between perfusion of the choriocapillaris (CC) and macular function in eyes with intermediate age-related macular degeneration.
What patients should eat to reduce their risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is still unclear. We investigated the effect of a diet recommended by Health Councils on AMD.
The association between long-term cardioprotective aspirin use and neovascular age-related macular degeneration is controversial. This study was undertaken to estimate the risk of neovascular age-rela...
A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.
A retrogressive pathological change in the retina, focal or generalized, caused by genetic defects, inflammation, trauma, vascular disease, or aging. Degeneration affecting predominantly the macula lutea of the retina is MACULAR DEGENERATION. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p304)
Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.
A form of RETINAL DEGENERATION in which abnormal CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION occurs under the RETINA and MACULA LUTEA, causing bleeding and leaking of fluid. This leads to bulging and or lifting of the macula and the distortion or destruction of central vision.
Degenerative changes in the RETINA usually of older adults which results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field (the MACULA LUTEA) because of damage to the retina. It occurs in dry and wet forms.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
