I'm new on here, 25 years old, ~-10 in both eyes and have been having macular haemorrhages on and off for the last two years.
The first time it happened in my right eye, we first took a "wait and see" approach as CNV was unconfirmed, then after it got worse I was given an injection. Since then, two more haemorrhages in the right eye and four haemorrhages in the left have all been treated promptly with injections. All left scarring but no noticeable visual disturbance.
However, after my latest haemorrhage in my left eye, the doctor says it's probably just simple bleeding and he wouldn't recommend injection. FFA was negative and the fluid is going away. Unfortunately it's directly over the fovea, so prognosis for recovery of visual acuity is bad (this is obviously concerning, but I'd rather see what happens before processing this).
What I can't understand is after the initial hesitation, for eighteen months the default position had been to inject, but now I'm being told there's never been any evidence of CNV, although it's really hard to be sure about anything, and the best bet is just to leave it to sort itself out. But then does that mean all those nasty injections were just precautionary, but basically pointless? I just don't understand what's changed. All I've done is followed the advice of whichever doctor (there have been several) I've seen at the time.
It is hard enough having these haemorrhages, with no way to prevent or treat them, but all the conflicting information, a lot of which seems to be guesswork, has left me confused and disempowered as well.
Can anyone else share their experiences of macular haemorrhages or simple bleeding associated with myopia, including any precautionary treatment they may have had, or not had?
