My Life with Wet AMD

My left eye was the first to grow a leaky blood vessel. The only treatment then was Visudyne. I think it was 2004, but can't be sure. Any how, I don't have any central vision in that eye.


My right eye began to leak in 2006, and I got Lucentis injections for it. I have 60/200 vision in the right eye and have not needed an injection for over three years now. I think it is because of my switch to a no-oil and completely plant-based diet with a lot of greens eaten raw. I do believe that dairy products lead to the growth of VEG-F in the eye. Dr. Colin Campbell's book, The China Study, speaks about the destructive role of casein that dairy has.
