Macular Degeneration Center

The AMD Center of Excellence is dedicated to basic, translational and clinical research aimed at understanding the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration with the goal of its prevention, treatment and cure.

About 12 million people nationwide suffer from AMD - a disease of the retina associated with aging that affects central vision - yet little is known about its causes and there are few treatments. We have a diverse and experienced team of vision scientists and physicians working to decipher how AMD destroys the macula, the tiny center of the retina, and how abnormal blood vessels grow and leak causing "wet" AMD, and other devastating retinal disorders like diabetic retinopathy.

The goal is to screen patients for problems before structural changes in the retina or macula are visible
