Wet AMD / Glaucoma
both / left only glaucoma
Age at Diagnosis
dry 65 / wet 68
20/35 L - 20/200 R
Lucentis injections - 35+ L eye - 20+ R eye
Glaucoma is in my "good" eye - drops 4x daily
Generally I go for monthly injections (both eyes) with occasional 3 month periods off when fluid is low. Left eye has been maintained at 20/35. Right eye no central vision/good peripheral vision.
Impact On Your Life
Major, but I've adapted. Fear of further vision loss.
Brighter household lighting. No night driving.
More About Me
Widowed since this began. Live alone with (terrific) dog. Can still do most things--even drive carefully, though not at night.
