Jordana Fein, ARVO 2023: Current therapeutic options for neovascular age-related macular degeneration
Neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) is an advanced form of macular degeneration that historically has accounted for the majority of vision loss related to AMD. Current treatment consists of injecting inhibitors of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) into the vitreous cavity to interfere with proliferation of choroidal neovascularization and to reduce vascular permeability. It was […]
