Wet Macular Degeneration
@lvon, I'm tagging fellow members @ktcrosswalk1 @suemer @peggyj4411 and @sut who also have wet macular degeneration and who may be able to share their experiences with treatment options.
Ivon, you said that you tried a different injection and that things were getting better, but then something made things worse. Are you referring to Avastin (bevacizumab) following by Eylea (aflibercept) as you outlined in this discussion?

Did you only get one injection of Eylea? When did you return to Avastin?

Yes I only had one injection of Eylea and within 6 hours my eye went 75% darker and my vision was so blurry for 4 weeks. I went from 20/20 to 20/40 in that eye 5 weeks after the injection and I cannot get the inflammation to go away in 5 months now. I did go back to Avastin and It does not help as before the Eylea.
