VERA VIDAL, Vivian et al. Effectiveness of the ozone therapy in dry macular degeneration associated with the age. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.6, pp.798-807. ISSN 1029-3019.

Introduction: The origin of the dry macular degeneration associated with the age is still uncertain. Objective: To determine the effectiveness of the ozone therapy in patients with this condition. Methods: A therapeutic intervention was carried out in those affected by that disease, attended in the Retina Department of the Ophthalmology Center of "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital in Santiago de Cuba, from January 2008 to January 2009. Cases were divided into two groups: those treated with ozone and those that received Nutriforte tablets. Results: The female sex and mean age of 65 years prevailed. In the first group the visual acuity of 0,51 became 0,63 after treatment, and in the second group it was 0,47 to 0,5 with improved retinal sensibility in both cases. Conclusions: Ozone therapy was effective to treat people with macular degeneration.
