Hi everyone. Just like the last post, this Tuesday I was told I had MD too. I don't think I was fully processing at the time as I was at clinic to find out if I should get my double lens replacement op done for my cataracts (at the ripe old age of 46..). I'd never heard of the condition before and tried to write everything down the doctor said but she covered a lot. She did not specify wet or dry but said I needed more tests including the florescian angiogram (I think).
Once I got home, I googled to find out more about the condition and had a go at the grid. I've 2 patches with warped vision on one eye with 1 patch on the other. I realise all the advise is get help so I contacted the hospital. I'm booked in for the tests in 10 days time - they can't get me in any earlier event though the nurse on the macular clinic said she would if she could.
Needless to say 10 days seems a very long time to wait for a proper diagnosis. I'm trying to not panic (not particularly well!) while fully entertaining the possibility I really must have the wet AMD.
I wondered if it is the case that if you have warped vision on the grid, you definitely have Wet AMD? I appreciate the experts are best placed to tell me everything but I'm trying to gauge how much I should be prepared for the Wet diagnosis - I wondered if others could explain their grid experience.
