  • How often are PDT treatments needed for AMD?


    I have wet AMD (when abnormal blood vessels grow in the back of the eye) in one of my eyes. With photodynamic therapy (PDT), what is the average time span before I will have to get it retreated? I know it varies a lot, but are we talking about weeks, months or years?


    PDT is typically done about every three to four months. Most patients receive only one to three treatments. PDT is no longer considered a first line treatment for neovascular, or wet, AMD. It is typically used in combination with injections of anti-VEGF medicine.
