Wet AMD Discussion Board

Welcome to's Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) discussion board.

Here you can chat about general topics such as symptoms, lifestyle, diet, and more!

  1. I hope this one works. The other Amd "social" media discussion boards were awful. I hope we can be more tolerant and understanding then others.

    1. I'm sorry to hear that you haven't felt supported in other online spaces. Please feel free to share any questions you may have in particular regarding wet AMD to kickstart the discussion here. Wishing you well, Abby (Team Member).

  2. Then, in order to kick this off. How is this; I am foregoing my next few injections on the advice of my body. What with the ongoing COVID vax, each time I got a vax during the times I was getting monthly injections...I winded up in such extreme physical pain that I nearly gave up. Really.
    Imagine having each physical movement feel like you were tearing the muscles off of your bones. Pretty bad uh. No Doc can say yeah this is what happened. My body knows and I also know this is MY decision no one else should follow me.
    I think this is worth discussion.

    1. you are correct about the potential loss of vision when injections are skipped. Holly and anyone considering a break from injections should consider the consequences but as you pointed out it is their decision. Thank you for your encouragement and support for Holly. Sharon Moore Advocate

    2. Hi, thanks for your concern.

  3. Holly--I get injections, too--in both eyes. Agreed, they're not pleasant, but for me they are necessary.

    1. having injections in both eyes is rough. My sister recently had to start getting them in both eyes and it has been hard for her. Her retinal specialist does not do them at the same time so she has to make frequent visits for injections. How is your vision? Thanks for sharing, Sharon Moore Advocate
