Just to say that after a year of Eylea treatment - first injection last June, every 4 weeks until Christmas, every 8 weeks until this June, I have now been moved onto every 10 week injections. So all going in the right direction! I have to keep an eye on the other eye (?!) In case it goes from dry to wet but it does feel good to have that longer time between injections.
I did take vitamin supplements of Macushield, though only 2 tablets daily as they are really expensive and now I've found equivalents derived from blueberries, to take.
I've found injections variable in their application but have discovered that relaxing as much as poss helps as well as telling the nurse that I am nervous and have had pain in the past so get enough numbing drops. Afterwards I take a couple of pain killers and use eye drops copiously whenever needed, so there is no gritty build up.
The only visual disturbance is a tiny 'blip' now and again..
So I just want to say a big thanks to the NHS fir their prompt, friendly and efficient rratment!
