Been Lucky So Far

I am a 70 year old male in great health. I was diagnosed with macular degeneration when I was 62. Dry in left eye and wet in right. Immediately began taking vitamins for the dry and injections

for the wet. Had 6 injections and the bleeding stopped. Progressed to having appointments every 4 months. Went for several years with no injections and then slight bleeding. Had 3 shots and bleeding stopped. In June 2016 bleeding again. 3 more shots. It has now been 13 months without a shot and no bleeding. See my doctor every 6 months. My vision is a little worse than it was when first diagnosed.

I know that my luck will run out one day, but for now all is good. Has not interfered with any aspects of my life.
