Bascom Palmer Eye Institute

Macular Degeneration research

AMD is perhaps the most active area of research in all of ophthalmology. Still, we do not know the underlying cause for AMD. Hundreds of studies from around the world are dedicated to elucidating the genetic and environmental causes for this disease. Bascom Palmer continues its central role in discovering new drugs that can help treat dry AMD and improve the treatment for wet AMD. Many of our patients participate in clinical trials and get access to new, potentially vision saving treatments that are not yet available in the market. Ask your Bascom Palmer retinal specialist for more details.
