Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I went to see an opthamologist today because of blurred vision in my left eye. He discovered a small fluid filled blister right behind my macula. He wants me to come back next week for an injection into the eye. Can you tell me little more about it. My vision a year ago was 20/30 in my left eye, now its 20/70. I did suffer an hit to the left side of my head right on my ear on June 22nd. My ear was very swollen, purple and blue, for a week or so. Could this have caused it or is this wet AMD? I am 48 years old, female. Thank you.
What about the injections that he wants to give me? He said the laser is no good because the blister is right behind my retina and it could permanently make a burned spot. So he thinks the injections are the answer. Do you know what type of medications are injected and how well they work? Thank you so much for your answers.
Also I like to run 3 to 4 times a week. Is it ok for me to continue to do so. I run about 3 miles at a time.
Do you agree with the injections or do you prefer laser treatment?
This is my last question, sorry for all these questions. I am just a little bit concerned since I never had any problems with my eyes in the past.
Great thank you. You have been very helpful. Have a great day!:-)
