If it was macular degeneration, try what I am using. It was prescribed by my optometrist in late 2018 when he noticed that I had MD. i get this at Walmart.

Equate Vision Formula 50+

While he actually prescribed a different brand, when I showed him the ingredients of this brand, he said it was good. I take one pill both morning and evening. A year after he prescribed this and I started taking it, when he examined me again, he made no mention of the MD, so I asked him about it. He looked again and said things looked good, so the stuff must be working.

pills I can do. Thanks for the info. Will check it out.

Last time I went to the eye doctor, was 5 years ago. He started rambling on about macular something another and said I needed to start getting shots in my eyes and to make a follow up appointment as I was leaving. Went to check out and the nice lady asked when the Dr would like to see me next, told her he didn’t mention anything and said my goodbye.

Ain’t a chance in hell I’m getting needles stuck in my eyes.

I get the needle in the eye every 5 weeks. 11:00 am tomorrow will be the next session. Fortunately it’s not my shooting eye.
You can go blind without treatment. Go back and get a new opinion.

That can’t be very comfortable. My Endo doc has been pushing me that way for a few years now. Just nothing about getting a needle in the eye sounds good at all. You’re a brave soul to do it every 5 weeks

Had my one week appointment for my right eye. The verdict? I am 20/20 for distance vision, my pressures are normal, no inflammation...in short, everything is fine. I'm cleared of all restrictions and can resume normal activities. I only have to finish out the eyedrop regimen. I have a final checkup three weeks from today that the doctor called my "graduation."

This means I can finally try out my new AR pistol and my SIGs. It'll be interesting to see how I do.
