Not yet: While there are several medications as well as stem cell and gene therapies that are currently being investigated, no treatment has been proven to be safe and effective for geographic atrophy, the hallmark of dry amd. High dose anti-oxidant vitamin supplementation has been shown to be helpful in preventing the progression to the wet form of macular degeneration when certain early signs are present.
