Prognosis or Current State of Vision
MD still progressing. May combine PDT with Avastin if vision continues to deteriorate

No family history of MD on either side.

Impact on My Life
I haven't sorted this out yet.

Employment
Because I live 10 miles from my workplace I need to be able to drive. And since I work a late-night shift, public transportation is not an option. If my MD progresses and spreads to my other eye, I will need to either find a day job or move to within walking distance of my workplace.
