Vaccines using mRNA technology - could this negatively impact AMD?

Some of the new COVID vaccines use mRNA technology. Has anyone who has received these vaccines experienced worsening of their AMD condition as a result? Have any studies been performed to ensure that this technology will not accelerate the progression of AMD?

  1. in my research for an article I wrote regarding the vaccine and AMD patients I did not find and contraindications for people with AMD. Here is a link to the research indicating that AMD patients were at higher risk for complications with Covid19. https://www.macular.org/2021/02/05/study-indicates-amd-patients-are-at-higher-risk-of-covid-19-complications
    It is my understanding that there has not been any specific research into the safety of the vaccine for patients with AMD. When in doubt I would suggest discussing it with your primary care doctor. Best wishes, Sharon Moore Advocate
