Yes, but the shame of it is the same pharma company has a drug that is
just as effective for amd and much cheaper. See:

The FDA has approved a new drug that could help patients with macular
degeneration. The drug, lucentis, treats the wet form of macular
degeneration. It's the only drug shown to significantly reverse failing
vision. One dose is expected to cost around two-thousand dollars.
Injections are given monthly or bi-monthly. The manufacturer will start
shipping lucentis today. Check out this video about this new drug, this
isn't a spam:
