For Macular Degeneration “I was started out on Avastin (chemotherapy agent). Didn’t improve my amd – I went to medication #2 Lucentis, injection didn’t really hurt-the pain after the shot was bad. Lucentis did not help. Started on Eylea. Another chemotherapy agent. Very painful after the shot. It would last for 48 hours or more. Very bad pain. Eylea did not improve my vision either. With everything combined; the risk of poisoning my eye ball just to reduce water on the retina? I did not want to end up with some form of eye cancer from the poison. I still do not like the idea of that poison in my eye. No wonder the pain was so bad. Now I take 40mg Luetin. Vit A, Vit C & zinc and daily green shakes. NOW my vision is improving with better diet!NO JOKE!”

For Macular Degeneration “On Dec. 01, 2014 I awakened with huge blind spots in my left eye. My vision had been 20/25 corrected before the bleed. I got help within 24 hours from my retina doctor. My right eye remains at 20/30 corrected. After the first injection my sighthad improved significantly in two weeks. Subsequent injections seem to havet stabilized my sight and improved some more. My retina doctor told me today thatanswer will have to come from my opthamologist . So I will have him take a look.I am very grateful about my progress. I am 83 years old. That’s old.Paul”

For Macular Edema “After two days my sight was restored. It was terrific except it did not last more than a few weeks. Had the same experience with Eylea.”

For Macular Degeneration “I have been receiving lucentis for almost two years, about 18 injections. my eye sight has stabilized and I am able to drive and use my computer, I still see wavy line with just my left eye,( the one receiving injections) but my right eye is dominant and when both are open things look normal. I will continue with the treatment because I do see a lot clearer since I started treatment. I am 77 years young and I don’t want to have to slow down my very active life. I think I will always see some wavy lines and a small smoky spot. But you just have to deal with those small problems. good luck to all off you that will develop this eye condition. see your eye doctor as soon as you notice an eye problem.”
