Colin McCannel, M.D., a Mayo Clinic ophthalmologist, discusses a medication that’s been proven to delay the progression of macular degeneration and prolong sight for many people.

    We can’t comment on treatments being offered elsewhere, but would just refer you to this page for information about how Mayo Clinic treats macular degeneration.

    If you are in the Southwest (you mentioned Santa Fe), you should know that Mayo Clinic has a campus in Arizona.
