I'm already grateful for this group. Today I had my first appointment with a new opthalmologist. My old one retired. She'd had me taking Preservison for year. But today the new doctor said I do have macular degeneration in one eye, said I might need injections. I was struck numb. And he said nothing else. Fortunately I live near a great eye hospital, and even more fortunately, I have an appointment for March 15th. I would appreciate any suggestions for what I should ask them. I won't be going back to my new doctor. He had me in and out and I asked things like what about my other eye? What's the prognosis, etc.? No answers. He said his retina specialist will check my records tomorrow and decide if I do or don't need injections.
Whatever his office says, I believe I'm safe waiting for the next appointment. I'm 73, type two diabetic. It's under control last A1C was 6.9, previous was 6.3. I so miss my old doctor. I could not imagine her being so cavalier. Any advice is appreciated. I was petrified, but as I read more I'm gaining a bit of hope.
