[Correspondence] Stem cells in age-related macular degeneration and Stargardt’s macular dystrophy

I read with great interest the Article by Steven Schwartz and colleagues (Feb 7, p 509),1 which reported the results of treatment of 18 patients with advanced dry age-related macular degeneration and Stargardt’s disease (juvenile macular degeneration). However, an important factor to interpret these results is that these types of macular degeneration are different from wet macular degeneration, in which visual improvement increases as fluid leakage and bleeding decrease.
