My "Kind" of Macular Degeneration

At my last appointment in Boston, I was told my macular degeneration is caused by a lack of blood circulation to the choroid layer of my eye...the retina is starving for blood.

Have other people heard this?

I have a flashing light on the outer edges of my vision.

Does anyone else out there see these flashing lights?
