choroidal neovascularization due to myopic degeneration

Right

Eye Color

Age at Diagnosis
39

Treatment
July 2005 - Kenalog injection and PDT. November 2005 - Avastin Injection

Prognosis or Current State of Vision
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.

Family History
Everyone is nearsighted: parents, sister and 2 out of 4 young nieces.
