Baruch Kuppermann discusses the challenges of treating patients with dry AMD.

Growing old leads to a growing number of health problems, including those that challenge our ability to see. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that -- until recently -- robbed the elderly of the ability to read, drive and see the faces of their loved ones.
