Levodopa may improve vision in patients with macular degeneration
The widely used and well-tolerated drug commonly used to treat Parkinson’s disease may help significantly reduce the need for more costly, more invasive treatments, report investigators in The American Journal of Medicine.
Investigators have determined that treating patients with an advanced form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) with levodopa, a safe and readily available drug commonly used to treat Parkinson’s disease, stabilized and improved their vision. It reduced the number of treatments necessary to maintain vision, and as such, will potentially reduce the burden of treating the disease, financially and otherwise.
