My MD Journey

I was diagnosed with dry AMD (macular degeneration) when I was 44. I’m now 69. About 10 years ago it progressed to wet MD in both eyes. My right eye responded well to a single injection; my left eye is stubborn and still requires injections every few weeks. The injections don’t really bother me, but I wish I didn’t need them.

I’m so thankful for the medical advances that have allowed my MD specialist to preserve some of the eyesight I have left. At times, it is difficult to deal with decreasing central vision and impaired depth perception. With help and support from family and friends, I know I can navigate through this next challenging chapter of my life.
