The wet form of macular degeneration is when blood or fluid can leak from the choroid into the retina, causing acute (and sometimes profound) vision loss. This form is treated with anti-VEGF medication, which can dramatically improve a patient’s vision in most cases. These medications are a true breakthrough in the medical treatment of macular degeneration over the past 15-20 years!
