Have had 22 injections, half have been Lucentis, the other half of Avastin. Have gone as long as 8 months without an injection, but have been checked every 4 to 10 weeks.
Have not lost any vision to speak of. Do not see wavy lines, and do not have a black spot in the center of my vision. Just started on Timolol for the glaucoma.
No one in my immediate family has had macular degeneration. I do have a first cousin with glaucoma

Not much has changed in my lifestyle, as I do see quite well.
Always pleased when I go to the doctor and my pictures show the fluid has not returned.
None to speak of.
Retired elementary teacher.
More About Me
We have 3 children and 8 grandchildren ranging in ages 6 to 25. I do a lot of crafts and enjoy teaching craft classes. We have done a lot of traveling covering all the states, but have just moved to an independent retirement facility, so trips will be shorter in duration and returning to places we like the best. We have a motorhome that we travel in.
