Just diagnosed with myopic macular degeneration-wet type
(Illinois, U SA)
I am a 34 yr old woman who is pretty healthy. One month ago I began to notice that all straight lines appeared wavy out of my right eye. I went to a ophthalmologist who diagnosed me with bilateral posterior vitreous humor detachment but sent me to an retina specialist for a second opinion.
Then, I got diagnosed with wet type myopic macular degeneration. I've had one set of injections in both eyes and will go back monthly for now. He used Eylea.
I am very afraid. I just want to be able to work in the career I love, and stay independent. I would truly appreciate any input from people with similar stories.
