Study Says Anti-VEGF Drugs Effective.


Study Says Anti-VEGF Drugs Effective.
Reuters  (1/29, Jegtvig) says anti-VEGF medicines to treat people suffering form wet macular degeneration have been effective, citing a study published in JAMA Ophthalmology. Two Duke University economists analyzed data of Medicare beneficiaries from 1994 to 2011 and discovered that patients diagnosed after anti-VEGF drugs were introduced were less likely to lose vision and less likely to move into long-term care. They discovered that the use of anti-VEGF therapy cut vision loss by 41 percent compared with earlier forms of treatment.


The Doctors at Eyes On Main have a program that may help prevent the need for VEGF therapy,  by early detection of macular degeneration.  Through the use of Optomap retinal scanning, and annual exams, the doctors of Eyes On Main, "Dr Duane Wires, Dr. Liane Wilt, and Dr. Pamela Lynch, can detect the retinal changes that lead to wet macular degeneration earlier.  

Studies are now showing changes in diet, adding eye health supplements, and eye protection that filters out UV and short wavelength blue light, may prevent or delay the onset of macular degeneration which may lead to wed macular degeneration.  


Attached is a whitepaper you may down load that discusses the benefits of one dietary supplement MacuHealth.
