Seeking volunteers with Non-Central Geographic Atrophy (GA) or who are genetically high-risk for Dry Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) for a registry study to increase understanding of how AMD progresses and to support future studies
We are studying how dry age-related macular degeneration disease progresses by looking at people with non-central Geographic Atrophy (GA). We want to see if there is a connection between the genetic type of GA and changes in the eye and vision over time. We will collect DNA samples by using a swab to scrape cells from inside of volunteer's mouths and then monitor their eyes at office visits every 6 months over several years.
What we're hoping for
We hope to develop a patient registry and collect important data over a long period of time to further increase understanding of how dry age-related macular degeneration progresses and to support future studies.
