Wet Macular Degeneration
@mjj Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, a place to give and get support.
You are worried about your diagnosis of macular degeneration and you are looking to connect with people that also have this diagnosis.
Congrats on beat the odds but understandably you are still nervous about vision loss.
You will notice that I moved your question to a previous discussion. I did this so you could connect with members @ktcrosswalk1 @suemer @peggyj4411 @sut @lvon @sweede536 that have already discussed this topic, in a central location.
What do most people fail in the first two months? Do they mean the treatment fails to work?

Hi Erika, I don't know how to find the previous discussion in a central location. Please tell me how to get there! Thanks.
She apparently meant that my central vision begins deteriorating. This must mean that the treatments eventually will fail to stop the progression. She gave me no prediction of when, so I just continue with what I'm doing. I did ask her if my other eye (which has drusen) will also turn "wet," and she replied, "It's a progressive disease, Mary." I guess that's a "yes," but of course she can't give me a time-line for either eye, and I don't expect her to. Meanwhile, I continue trying to take care of my eyes and my health the best I can: eating right, exercising, not smoking, keeping my weight down, etc.
