Hello I am sorry but there is no treatment except for avastin/lucentis. You may need 6injection or 10 more,that is dependent on response of eye.. Please don't discontinue treatment and follow your doctor instructions

If the blood vessels are allowed to grow for too long the blood vessels may scar the retina and this scarring cannot be treated. At the moment there is no treatment for dry AMD. ...
