The sudden onset of wet AMD
I'm a 61 year old police sergeant and a month ago while on patrol I began to see tiny flashes of light and black floaters in my left eye. I thought I was just tired, and my eyes were just strained.
A while later while driving into a parking lot I high centered my unit on an extended sidewalk. I realized that a huge area of my vision on the left side was just gone. I went to my eye doctor and after an examination he gave me the bad news.
I was placed on medical leave that same day of course. I received my first injection of Avastin a week later, and yes it hurt! Three weeks later I have improved vision but still have a lot of distortion and areas of blindness, I hope that will improve over time.
