Ive had 6 injections but not sure what there called, what two have you taken and which one worked best for you. it gave me about 85% back but the middle is still distorted. I get a lot of eye strain which makes my left side cramp up in pain. I once in a while put on a eye patch and that relieves the strain! do you take special vitamins?

The only injections I've had are Avastin. I guess they're working okay, since I've had no progression. My very first visit my doctor recommended Preservision2 twice a day, which I've been taking religiously. They are expensive pills, but Costco has good sales on them. So far I've had no vision changes, except dry eyes, which apparently was caused by Systane eye drops. She said I was reacting to the preservatives, so I changed to a drop with no preservatives and the dry eyes (and bloodshot wet eyes) have cleared up. The new drops are expensive, but necessary.
