Currently, there is no treatment to stop the progression of geographic atrophy, the advanced form of non-exudative (dry) age-related macular degeneration. Several promising therapies are being investigated in clinical trials such as antioxidants, neuroprotection agents, complement inhibitors, vascular enhancers, visual cycle modulators, and stem cell therapies. This review discusses the possible treatments that may potentially be available in the future to prevent disease progression.
