Customer Question
I have macular degeneration wet...
I have macular degeneration wet in both my eyes however the left has been treated 5 years ago and is only useful in the house and the right eye went wet January 2015 and my doctor has been treating it with injections and I have fairly good vision in that eye. It is Saturday and there is no one in my doctors office so I am asking for your help. I woke this morning with a film over my right eye and it was very wet all day. I have a prescription for prednisolone acetate which was prescribed 2-5-20014 but the bottle tells me that it is good until July 2016. Can I treat the eye with this until I can see my doctor on Monday?
