Comments Off on More Advancements in the Care of Macular Degeneration by Google’s Bard AI
I used the exact same prompt at Google’s Bard AI which is in closed beta mode at the moment. (it may be opening at any time). This took Bard about a minute to finish and while it’s not as good as the Bing version, for a minute of my time, it’s not bad. Take a read and then compare it to Bing- which do you think is better? Leave me a note in the comments!
Advancements in the Care of Macular Degeneration by Google’s Bard
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of vision loss in people over the age of 65. There is no cure for AMD, but there are treatments that can slow the progression of the disease and help to preserve vision.
Recent advancements in the care of AMD
In recent years, there have been significant advancements in the care of AMD. These advancements include:
New drugs for wet AMD. In the past, the only treatment for wet AMD was laser surgery. However, in recent years, a number of new drugs have been developed that can be injected into the eye to slow the progression of the disease. These drugs work by blocking the growth of new blood vessels that can leak fluid and damage the retina.
New drugs for dry AMD. Dry AMD is the more common form of AMD, and there is no cure. However, there are a number of new drugs that are being developed that may help to slow the progression of the disease. These drugs work by targeting different factors that contribute to the development of dry AMD.
Gene therapy. Gene therapy is a promising new approach to treating AMD. Gene therapy involves using viruses to deliver genes into cells that can help to repair or replace damaged cells. Gene therapy is still in the early stages of development, but it has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of AMD.
Outlook for AMD
The outlook for AMD is improving. With the development of new treatments, more people with AMD are able to preserve their vision. However, more research is needed to develop even better treatments and eventually find a cure for AMD.
What you can do to help prevent AMD
There is no surefire way to prevent AMD, but there are a number of things you can do to reduce your risk of developing the disease. These include:
Don’t smoke. Smoking is a major risk factor for AMD. If you smoke, quitting is the best thing you can do for your eye health.
Eat a healthy diet. A diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help to protect your eyes from AMD.
Get regular exercise. Exercise helps to reduce inflammation, which is a risk factor for AMD.
Protect your eyes from the sun. Wear sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays when you are outdoors.
Get regular eye exams. Early detection is important for effective treatment of AMD. See your eye doctor for regular eye exams, even if you have no symptoms.
Short and to the point. The only drawback I see with this post is that Google’s own robots want to see blog posts be at least 500 words long and as currently written, it’s only 431. Adding my commentary takes it to over 500 but, if I want to be really lazy and just post things directly from ai, I’ll probably have to define how many words an article needs to have. (577 total words- perfect)
