Macular disease is the leading cause of blindness.

Anti-VEGF Treatment is effective and becoming the mainstream. We have doctors who specializes in macular diseases and deal with several types of medications.

We perform this treatment mainly on Mondays. Please feel free to contact us.

Treatment for macular disease

  • Anti-VEGF therapy

    Anti-VEGF therapy

    We can expect hindering VEGF(vascular endothelial cell growth factor) by injecting medicine in your eye. It will finish in a few minutes so patients have little stress on their body and mental.

    Anti–vascular endothelial growth factor therapy, also known as anti-VEGF therapy or anti-VEGF medication, is the use of medications that block vascular endothelial growth factor. This is done in the treatment of certain cancers and in age-related macular degeneration. They can involve monoclonal antibodies such as bevacizumab, antibody derivatives such as ranibizumab, or aflibercept.

What VEGF is…

It’s a matter which can be a biggest factor worsen Macular Degeneration. Newborn blood vessels grow from existing vessels. These newborn blood vessels are weak and easily broken, therefore, can be a cause of lesion like bleeding or edema.

Photodynamic therapy

After injecting visudyne, irradiate laser beam to lesioned point on retina.

Others

There is a possibility of preventing Macular Degeneration by taking nutrition like vitamin C, vitamin E or zinc.
