What Is Visudyne Therapy?

This method of treatment uses a 'light-activated' drug, Visudyne, to slow abnormal vessel growth. The Visudyne drug is injected into the patient's arm, followed by the application of a non-heat producing laser. The drug is activated by the light of the laser and begins closing the lesion and thereby slowing the progress of vision loss.
