Myopic Macular Degeneration
I was extremely nearsighted as a child - wore contacts for years. Finally had laser surgery to correct my vision.
All along, however, my retina was stretched and I was diagnosed with myopic degeneration in my right eye. I had approximately 10 injections over a 2 year period and the bleeding finally stopped. My vision is permanently damaged - I do not drive at night.
Affects of diagnosis
I concentrate on where I put things. I’m nervous about traveling (which I used to do regularly). It has changed my life dramatically & I am struggling with it. I am 67 years old, still working.
Life will never be the same
True or false: You always know if you have macular degeneration.
