Diagnosed with MD About 6 Years Ago

Hi there! My name is Sandy and I am 82 years old.

Injections in my left eye

I was diagnosed about 8 years ago (left eye). I have had injections, every 4-6 weeks ever since. My vision in that eye requires a strong lens in order to read., etc.

Assessing my right eye next month

Next month, I will be tested to determine if I need injections in my right eye. Thus far, my MD in my right eye has been primarily dry. However, my ophthalmologist has expressed some concern during my last visit.

Disturbed about potential progression

I found his comments and the potential for injections in my 2nd eye disturbing.

Years ago, my husband lost his sight because both his eyes had significant dry MD. So far, I am still capable of driving.
