Where I Am After 6 Months
Last updated: January 2020
I noticed one morning in June I was having trouble reading the paper. Something looked off.
I got my first shot that day
I went that day to the eye doctor. They made an appointment for two weeks later. It kept getting worse. By the time I got to the doctor, he sent me to the retinal doctor. I got my first shot that day.
Wet and dry AMD
I have wet in the right and dry in the left. My second shot didn't go well. I moved slightly and the doctor put a hole in my retina. Had to freeze it. Scary and a little painful but it didn't change my sight.
The future is scary
The shots have made a big difference. Mostly I see like I used to. It is scary to think of the future. I won't let it stop me and will continue to research to stay up to date. It is a comfort to read others' stories. Thanks.
Do you find that fear interferes with your ability to regularly go to eye specialist appointments?
