I've posted here before. My first attempt at a treatment for Wet MD ended badly. The anesthetic eye drops burned my eye. And after that the needle in my eye was horribly painful. I decided to try another Retinal Specialist. He has a good reputation, very nice and listened to what I had to say. I just saw him a second time, this week, for his first try at doing the procedure. However, again the eye drops burned as if acid was being put in my eye. He felt he could go no further. He said there was one other possibility. That would be to inject an anesthesia under my eyelid. Doesn't sound too pleasant but I will give it a try. Will make another appointment. Avastin was used in the eye drop attempt.
Had anyone else had these problems? I recall when I had my cataract procedures, I actually had no pain. Could it be because I have dry eyes now and the problem has been especially bad during this allergy season? I realize laser treatments were tried at one time, but were not that effective for treating Wet MD. But why has no other treatment been developed for such a common problem?
