For Macular Degeneration “Been on off the drug for 18 months, not on any regimented schedule, but as of now I am able to skip a treatment, the same a year ago. But this time I am taking herbs and a more veggie type diet, which for the past 6 month has equated to no longer have hypertension. 116-126/70 etc verses 142-155/90. (depends on when I am checked). Cutting meat and adding Q-10 and Phytosterol complex, some Fish/ Krill oil and garlic helps a lot. I say helps, the aforementioned items are the variable plus stopped using Generic Areds2 and back to the more expensive Brand name Areds2. I have two insurance polices Tricare always turns down claim due to the word injection triggers the non-Ambulatory (Dr Office walk in, not surgical center)”

For Macular Degeneration “I am a 69 year old female with extensive family history of vision loss from wet AMD. I was diagnosed with bilateral dry AMD at age 55. In March 2017 I noticed distortion and smudging in the right eye. I immediately sought treatment and was administered Eylea. I have now had 3 monthly injections. The macular edema has subsided and the leakage has stopped. I am now scheduled for injections at 8 week intervals. The injection procedure is painless, however once the numbing medication wears off the discomfort is intense for approx. 6 hours. I manage the pain with ice packs, one hydrocodone tablet and a long nap. I am cautiously optimistic that the Eylea medication will protect me from the same fate of my numerous relatives who were blind.”
