Length of time between injections

What is the longest length of time you have gone between injections for wet macular degeneration? My father hasn't needed an injection for over eight months now, which is wonderful. I'm just wondering if this is common. Wendy, Advocate.

  1. I have dry macular degeneration so I don’t have personal experience with the injections. My sister has wet in both eyes now. She went 18 months between injections but is now back to monthly. I know her experience isn’t typical but wouldn’t it be wonderful if that was the norm? Best wishes, Sharon Moore Advocate

    1. Thanks Sharon. Your sister must have been very happy the time she went 18 months between injections. My Dad is going for his second visit with his new specialist on Thursday, so we'll see if his "no injection" streak holds! Wendy, Advocate.
