I am very happy to have found this group.
Are you doctors treating Macular Degeneration or are you suffering from it?
I myself is an acupuncturist and have specialized in treating #MacularDegeneration and other eyediseases of the retina since 1988.

12-Month LAPTOP Study show that Intravitreal injection of ranibizumab (IVR)  is more effective than photodynamic therapy (PDT) in naive polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV).

Personally when the PCV is subfoveal or Juxtafoveal I started with PDT combinated with IVR at monthly intervals with good anatomical and functional results.

What do you think?

As I have gotten older I have started to suffer from macular degeneration. I have been looking for a doctor in Danville, IL who will help me and maybe provide treatments. I heard that there are now treatments that can help me. Does anyone know anything on this issue?

They are very close.They need to win!

We are a Robotics Team (in central Texas) also known as Epic Rainbow Bosses. We are sharing this research with you because part of our requirement for the First Lego League (FLL) competition is to make a research project and present it to the public. This year’s theme for FLL is called Senior Solutions. It is designed to find a problem that seniors 60 years or older have. We have to find a solution to a problem they face.

    Our problem that we are researching is macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is the degeneration of the macula by destroying the macula pigment. With macular degeneration, the eye starts to degenerate by ulta-violet rays oxidizing the macula pigment. As a result, vision starts to become blurry and black spots appear in vision. There currently is no cure.

    Our solution that we created is called TransVision. TransVision is a permanent transition lens that is replaces the original lens in the eye. It is desgined to be performed on young patients (late elementary school age) as a preventative solution to macular degeneration. It blocks the ultraviolet rays from getting to your macula pigment so that is it not destroyed. With TransVision you will never need another surgery, glasses, or sunglasses again.

    With TransVision we hope to someday make macular degeneration never happen again.

    Thank you for taking the time to listen to our research presentation.
