Shots are not working.

I am 68 and have been diagnosed with macular degeneration about 3 1/2 years ago. The doctor says I am too young to have it this bad. I have one wet and one dry.

I have been getting the shots and am on my 20th shot. I had Avastin, Lucentis, Eylea and so far nothing is doing what it says it should. I must say it is scary. There is a large edema in the right eye which is the wet eye. The shots might be holding it where it is. So far my vision isn't bad.

But I am totally scared about how I am going to live with this not being able to drive which will be a problem because of where I live. How do you cope? Is there any hope the shots might start working as I continue to take them?
