My Journey with Wet Macular Degeneration
(Avon Park, Florida)
I was around 58 when I woke up one morning and couldn’t see out of my left eye. I went to the eye doctor who stated that I had wet macular degeneration in the left eye and dry macular degeneration in the right. I started getting injections every 2 weeks.
I am now 68 and have been getting injections every month. I had cataracts removed beginning of the year and it helped for awhile. My right eye with the dry AMD has calcium buildup, which needs to be scraped sometimes and I have severe dry eyes for which I take drops.
I’ve really been thinking of stopping my injections. It has just been going on for so long and it takes me over 3 days to get over it. What does anyone think, I would really appreciate some help to figure this out.
