Age at Diagnosis
20/60 left eye
Lucentis injection in left eye and laser surgery - avastin injections in right eye. This week, avastin injections in both eyes.
Advanced wet MD in right eye and moderate wet MD in left eye. Doctor has not given me a prognosis. Trying to keep what vision I have.
My father and his brother had wet MD in the late 60's or early 70's. No treatment was available at that time.
Impact On Your Life
It has had a devasting impact upon my life, as I am presently caring for my critically ill husband.
I am just thankful for the vision I do have. It could be worse.
Mostly driving. I try to drive when the traffic is light. I park so that I can pull forward out of the parking space, rather than having to back out. Also, I can drive much better on cloudy days. I love to read, and I bought a Kindle, which helps greatly.
I am a retired legal secretary.
More About Me
