Macular degeneration, or age-related macular degeneration, is a leading cause of vision loss and requires prompt evaluation and treatment. Most people who develop the condition have the dry form, which can cause blind spots in your central vision. About 10% of people have the wet form of macular degeneration, which can lead to serious vision loss.

While there is currently no cure for macular degeneration, Duke retinal specialists use sophisticated imaging technology and the latest treatment advances to diagnose and manage the condition. We do everything we can to slow vision loss and maximize your quality of life.
