Opportunity to improve care of late stage macular degeneration

People with suspected late AMD (wet active) should be referred to a macula service within one working day, says NICE guidance.

According to the Macular Society, over 600,000 people in the UK are affected by age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

The new NICE guideline aims to ensure these people, who are at risk of blindness, receive a prompt diagnosis and fast access to effective treatments.
