An international group of fifteen expert ophthalmologists have been convened in Berlin, Germany by the nonprofit Angiogenesis Foundation to share key perspectives and discuss strategies for improving the advocacy, treatment, and vision outcomes for 'wet' form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the most common form of blindness over the age of 50 in developed nations.

Can QLT catch the eye with trial retina drug?
Canadian eye drug developer QLT Inc. (QLT-T6.980.091.31%) has had its share of pain, with setbacks for a drug delivery system and slowing growth for Visudyne, its main drug, leaving investors to hope an experimental retinal diseases drug can get growth back on track.
Positive Animal Studies for Novel Squalamine Eye Drop for Wet-AMD
Ohr Pharmaceutical today announced positive results from two critical animal studies on the recently announced Squalamine eye drop formulation for the treatment of wet-age related macular degeneration ("wet-AMD").
A hand-held device that fires sound waves into the eye could help prevent age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness.
The gadget uses the waves to help drugs get into the eye without the need for painful injections.
The notion of transplanting adult stem cells to treat or even cure age-related macular degeneration has taken a significant step toward becoming a reality.
Age related macular degeneration is a medical condition that results in distortion or loss of vision in the macula or center of the visual field in older adults due to damage to the retina. It is of two forms; "dry" and "wet".
Lpath will soon initiate two iSONEP Phase II trials: The PEDigree Study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of iSONEP in patients with RPE Detachment (PED), for which there is no approved drug, and the Nexus Study will evaluate the safety and efficacy in wet-AMD patients without PED. Lpath entered into an agreement with Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) in 2010 that provides Pfizer an exclusive option for a worldwide license to develop and commercialize iSONEP.
There's still no cure for macular degeneration, an incurable eye disease that is the leading cause of blindness among older people.
Is that about to change?

Nutritional Supplements are Recommended at an Older Age
current scientific review article has confirmed that an optimal supply of the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, as well as the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, is essential for keeping our eyes healthy. The authors emphasise the potential of these nutrients for protection of the retinal cells and the prevention and treatment of age-related degenerative eye diseases, such as macular degeneration (AMD) in the elderly.
Cataract surgery improved vision in patients with any stage -from mild to advanced- AMD in the first study to include an adequate number of advanced AMD patients. Data was obtained from the multicenter, prospective Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS)
Omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish such as tuna and salmon may protect against progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), but the benefits appear to depend on the stage of disease and whether certain supplements are taken, report researchers at the Laboratory for Nutrition and Vision Research (LNVR), Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (HNRCA) at Tufts University.
Cataract surgery doesn't hasten vision loss in people with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
That's the conclusion of a new study that challenges the findings of several large epidemiological studies that suggested a link between cataract surgery and accelerated AMD progression.
