Macular Degeneration Treatment
What is Macular Degeneration?
Dr Chandra Bala on Channel 7
For a million ageing Australians with Macular Degeneration, daily tasks such as reading and driving become challenging. For this group of people, we are hoping to improve their quality of life with a new pioneering treatment that will help them regain their independence.
This new treatment follows the same procedure as your routine cataract surgery but uses a new Intra-Ocular Lens with a built-in magnifier. This will help restore the patient’s central vision allowing them to read, drive and recognise their loved ones.
How this treatment can change your life!
Regain your ability to drive
To those who have lost their license due to macular degeneration, this is your chance to regain your freedom.
Regain your ability to read
Be able to read your favourite book, a handwritten letter from your friends and an email from your family.
Recognise the face of loved ones again
Regain your ability to recognise the faces of your friends, children and grandchildren.
