Hi. I'm really writing this to see if any one has a similar story to me, as I've never met anyone with eyes like mine, and there must be similar eyes out there
I'm 37 and I've always had short sight, first glasses at 5, but I must have needed them before. My sight gets progressively more myopic and my current prescription is c. L. -22, R. -17. Due to the myopia my eyes are very stretched and I've had several related issues with the macular. 8 years ago I had a blood vessel grow through in the L, and was treated once with Avastin, which cleared up the blood, but I'm left with a scar in the centre of the vision. 3.5 years ago I had a retinal detachment in my R (whilst 8 months pregnant too!), and in May this year I had a liquid leakage in the R, which was treated with 3 injections of Eylea, which has so far put things back to normal.
What I find hard is that no one at the eye hospital can ever tell me what the future is for my eyes. When I was a kid the optician always said my sight would stop changing when I stopped growing, well I stopped growing a long time a go and my eyes are still getting worse.
Would really love to hear from any folks in a similar situation.
