Marja with Wet AMD in one eye...
A week ago I went to see my regular eye doctor. I had seen curvy lines and weaker overall eye sight. The doctor said it was dry eyes, but I knew better since I have had dry eyes for years and these symptoms were different.
Did see the retina specialist who, after testing, gave me the news of wet AMD (am 73) and also gave me a shot of Avastin into the eye. No problems with the shot - none at all, and it seems that the eye has made an itsy-bitsy improvement. Will see the eye doctor tomorrow after a week from the shot. Am scared at thought of loss my sight, petrified really. Reading is my most dear hobby- I read everything.
I am thanking all for writing here as it makes things easier to hear other people's experiences.
The biggest scare for me is that this is kind of uncharted waters since every individual is different. No AMD in my family but then again they did not live a long life.
