I recently read that there will be laser surgery available for macular degeneration soon. What do you know about this?
Laser surgery for macular degeneration has been available for several decades and was largely replaced by photodynamic therapy, a type of "cold" laser combined with a medicine injected intravenously. That was largely replaced with anti-VEGF treatments which are the standard treatments today.
