Innovative Treatments for Macular Degeneration
There are different types of eye diseases but the most common, and often debilitating, types are those that affect the retina like macular degeneration
. The retina is the part of the eye that basically lets you see clear and vivid images. When any part of it gets damaged, you may lose your vision partially or completely depending on the eye disease.
What Is Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)?
Briefly, macular degeneration
is an age-related degenerative eye disease that affects the macula
, which is the round part of the eye located in the middle of the retina. It is responsible for your central vision. When this gets damaged, your straight-ahead vision
is affected. Over time, you may lose most of your central vision, allowing you to only see blurred images or a dark spot in your direct line of vision. This retinal disease does not cause blindness or complete loss of vision, but you won't be able to see vivid images and fine details in front of you.
AMD Usually Develops in People 50 Years Old and Above.
There are two types of macular degeneration
. The dry type is the more common form of this disease and develops when clumps of protein develop in the macula as a result of thinning (which may come with age). Dry AMD
may develop into wet AMD
Wet AMD is the more severe type between the two. This develops when new blood vessels form under the retina. These are abnormal blood vessels that may leak fluids like blood, causing scars to develop on the macula. People with wet AMD may experience central vision loss faster than those with dry AMD.
People with age-related macular degeneration
may eventually need assistance with their day-to-day living as loss of central vision means you won't be able to read, drive, or do everyday chores.
Innovative Therapies for Macular Degeneration
Eye specialist practicing conventional medicine say there is no cure for AMD, and since it is the leading cause of vision loss in older adults, this information can be frustrating and downright paralyzing. Doctors usually prescribe treatments or therapies that can help patients manage their symptoms or slow down the progression of the disease.
Conventional eye specialists say that people who have partially lost their central vision because of macular degeneration
may never regain it. This is where Courtney Medical comes in.
Courtney Medical gives hope to patients dealing with degenerative retinal diseases like AMD through their innovative Pittsburgh Eye Protocol (PEP) program.
What is Pittsburgh Eye Protocol (PEP)?
Briefly, PEP is a three-day program that comprises a unique set of non-invasive therapies. The goal of the program is to help patients restore or improve their vision affected by AMD or other retinal diseases. Patients who have undergone treatment at Courtney Medical
were quick to report that they experienced significant improvement
in their vision within those three days of the program.
