For 16 years I've been taking injections in my right eye for wet[-AMD. In fact, on June 30, 2006, I had had 3 injections and improved vision to the point my retinal specialist asked me to appear on TV in our metro area with him. I also became a patient-ambassador to tell my story over many areas in the U.S. Though I live with AMD, I'm faithful to do everything my retina specialist tells me. So my vision still amazes me in light of both of my parents having wet AMD in both eyes & dying blind. Further, I shared my story with our sons and other in the genetic line I have. Eternal vigilance is my motto for keeping vision the best it can be. And I still function completely.
