Macular degeneration is not the end of vision! Although this condition is incurable and can cause central vision loss, you still can prevent further vision loss by undergoing laser surgery.
As you may already know, there are two types of macular degeneration: dry age-related macular degeneration (dry AMD) and wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD). The dry form accounts for around 80% of cases.
Doctors prescribe medications and supplements to slow the progression of dry AMD. Meanwhile, they often prescribe medications and surgery to combat the wet AMD. Surgical options include laser surgery (laser photocoagulation and photodynamic therapy), retinal translocation, submacular surgery, and others.

The exact steps differ according to the type of laser surgery, whether laser photocoagulation or photodynamic therapy. Nevertheless, the steps may involve the following:
Your doctor will use eye drops to dilate your eyes. They may also use anesthetic eye drops.

Unfortunately, laser surgery can destroy healthy tissue alongside leaky blood vessels. This is why doctors only perform it to repair blood vessels that don’t reside in the center of the vision. Laser surgery also can only treat 10–15% of wet AMD’s lesions. Photodynamic therapy is a better option than laser photocoagulation because it targets unhealthy blood vessels without damaging much surrounding tissue. The risks also include:
