Worried about macular degeneration?
Age-related macular degeneration is the biggest cause of visual loss in the UK, affecting at least 600,000 people. We use our eyes to work, play and communicate, so any eye problem can be worrying. The world-leading ophthalmologists at London Medical are experts in diagnosing and treating macular degeneration. Using cutting-edge equipment and the latest medical advances, they can help protect your sight and restore your wellbeing.
London Medical is one of the capital’s leading centres for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration. There has been excellent progress in the management of wet age-related macular degeneration, offering hope for people affected by this debilitating condition.
Drugs are injected into the eye to stop the abnormal blood vessels growing. The London Clinic takes your comfort and wellbeing seriously. The eye is numbed before the injection and the needle is inserted through the corner of the eye, so that you cannot see it approaching.
The results have been remarkable. Up to 40 percent of patients’ vision has improved to 20/20. For people who do not respond, targeted laser therapy may be offered.

Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you can drive will depend on your level of vision. If macular degeneration only affects one of your eyes and you are able to meet the DVLA’s ‘visual standards for driving’, you don’t need to inform them. If, however, macular degeneration affects both eyes, you are legally obliged to inform the DVLA.
