This article makes me smile. Thank you Cora. Seventy-two is the new 40!! I will be 76 next month and have been retired for more than 10 years. You are so right about being able to enjoy all the things that make you smile. The injections? Bah… all in a day’s “not working”. I agree with your completely and unequivocally. Enjoy your life and…

Hi, us52609662, Thanks for reading my story. Every six weeks for double injections is certainly a daunting schedule. But you’re right, at least we can still see. It’s so gratifying when we hear someone has learned something, or realized they’re not alone, from our site. Thanks for sharing, Cora Lyn, MacularDegeneration.net Team Member

I’ll admit that I was horrified when I found out I had wet in the right eye and dry in the left. This was about 8 years ago. The shots (about 60 by now, frankly I’ve lost count) have helped the wet eye remain som […]

Roughly 10 years ago I was diagnosed with AMD. Both my mother and mother-in-law were also afflicted. Sadly, they both lost most of their central vision before treatment was available. At that time I enjoyed 3 […]

Thank you so much for sharing your learnings and experience with us @lensmith. Such an important point you make about the reflection of sunlight can be just as harmful as direct rays – wrap around sunglasses are a great tip! And great to know that the light therapy is still safe to use with sunglasses. Thanks for sharing and we’re thinking of you…

Good news for you. I have wet in both eyes and go every six weeks for double injections. I must admit I am nervous when I go for the pictures and reading the eye chart. I have lost a good part of vision in my left eye bit still have good core vision in the eye.
As difficult this journey can be I get up everyday and thank God for another day of…

Andrea, super article everyone should take to heart. I’d like to add that I changed my exercising from running to bike riding in 1994 about 2 months before I was diagnosed with AMD. And I’m a little nuts about exercising, doing over 7,000 miles per year on a bike from 1995 until 2016. When my ophthalmologist learned that, he made me get wra…
