Macular Degeneration My Opinion

Neither/Nor, Either/Or… AMD and/or DR

Patients usually have either macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy. Rarely both.

This site is for patients with macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.  I should really use proper grammar to say that this web site is for patients with either macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy.  A subtle difference.

Patients usually have one of these diseases or the other, but not both.  I do not believe that this is well documented.  Most patients have either diabetic retinopathy OR macular degeneration.  I have, but rarely, seen patients that develop both.  I don’t know why.

By Randall Wong, M.D.

As a retina specialist, I've been very successful with my websites to educate my patients about what I do professionally.

I am a father of five, have a passion for SEO, love Dunkin' Donuts and don't care for Starbucks coffee, love tennis, but only like to watch golf. I'm a huge youth ice hockey supporter and love Labrador retrievers.
