Negative Injection Reaction

Last updated: April 2022

Hi, my name is Sharon.

I had my fourth injection for wet macular degeneration in my left eye. This one was the worst. Each time I have experienced pain that they describe it as "can be" uncomfortable. That is not quite how I would describe the pain. How about intolerable!

Has anyone experienced this pain?

I wondered if anyone has experienced what I have. I did get to see my retina specialist today and she was very concerned and caring. She believes it's a sensitivity to the betadine and causes abrasions. She prescribed pain meds, but they did not touch the pain I was in.

It did calm down by the morning of the next day. I know I have to continue the injections, but I must say it scares me to go through this again.
