choroidal neovascularization due to myopic degeneration
Age at Diagnosis
July 2005 - Kenalog injection and PDT. November 2005 - Avastin Injection
Prognosis or Current State of
The treatment in July brought my vision back to 20/20 and stopped the leaking fluid. In November, the leaking started again and my RS recommended an injection of Avastin. I'm getting that today and am somewhat nervous, but hopeful that my vision will once again return to normal.
Everyone is nearsighted: parents, sister and 2 out of 4 young nieces.
