In brief: See Below

Dry (nonexudative) age-related macular degeneration (amd) is treated with areds (age-related eye disase study) vitamins.
Wet (exudative) amd is treated with ocular injections (intravitreal avastin, lucentis, (ranibizumab) or eylea). Separate from all this, narrow angle glaucoma is treated with laser (peripheral iridotomy) and eye drops that help lower eye pressure (intraocular pressure).
