AMD and a Pucker

Last updated: October 2020

I have both AMD and a macular pucker in my left eye. My doctor suggested that I have surgery on the pucker but there is no guarantee that my sight will improve. For now, I have decided to wait on the surgery and maybe the left eye will stabilize as it is.

Has anyone else had this issue? I am no longer able to read with my left eye, walking on uneven surfaces can be difficult, and the bright sun bothers me. It's hard to know what is from the pucker and what is from the AMD.
