Diagnosed with Wet AMD this month
I was sent to retinal ophthalmologist the day I was seen by my optometrist, who said I needed to be seen ASAP but did not give me a diagnosis.
Spent 4 hours being photographed in both eyes. Then got a shot in my left eye. It stung a lot the rest of that day. After waking up the next morning, though, there was no pain. I notice improvement in my central vision but the wavy lines are still there in the bottom left area. And I'm being followed by fruit flies (really floaters).
I am likely to have another shot in mid-December, he said.
Since I already had dry AMD in both eyes (progressing slowly) I was distressed to have the wet kind come up. I am 75 and in overall excellent health. Very active. Do a lot of hiking and exercising.
