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.
