Q: At the seminar, Dr. Wang talked about placenta and amniotic membrane, and treatment of macular degeneration. Should I come to WVI for my macular degeneration, I am currently getting injections every month.
A: Yes, Dr. Wang is conducting research, on fetal stem cell and amniotic membrane, which could potential help treating macular degeneration, as well as corneal injuries, in the future.
When the treatment indeed becomes available in future years for macular generation (beyond today's injections), the treatment will actually be performed by the retinal (the back of the eye) specialists that we work with.
Dr. Wang's own specialty is focused on the front part of the eye, i.e., cornea (for LASIK surgery), and lens (for cataract surgery)".
