Can treatment for wet AMD cause cataracts?
FEB 07, 2022
Research has not found a link between treatment for wet AMD and cataract. Although cataract is mentioned as a side effect in the manufacturer’s Patient Safety Information for aflibercept, this is not felt to be a common problem. Cataracts can progress despite UV protection, and many different factors play a role, including age, genetics, medical conditions, smoking, and more.
