My Macular Degeneration Journey

When I was in my sixties, I was diagnosed with AMD in both eyes. I lived in West Palm Beach, Florida, and my retina specialist, Dr. Lowe, in Lake Worth Beach, Florida, diagnosed me with wet AMD.

I have had four laser treatments in my eye right, and one laser treatment in my left eye. I then moved to Philadelphia, PA, and am being treated by Dr. Siivulungam at Wills Eye.

I now have distorted vision in my eye right I believe. It is a result of my four laser treatments in my right eye in Florida.

My right eye is now dry, and my left eye is wet. I am currently getting shots periodically.
