Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Surgical treatment has been shown to be able to improve vision that is lost as a result of age-related macular degeneration. Surgery is complex, such that improvement has always to be weighed against risk of complications. The availability of Ranibizumab and Bevacizumab is set to dramatically alter our management options. Surgical treatment will have a limited role to play in the next few years.
