I don’t know if people are able to share their experiences of macular oedema and success, or otherwise, with Eylea. I had sudden vision distortion in one eye (very short sighted -12 diopter) just before Christmas, saw a consultant mid-Jan and was prescribed Eylea injections. I have just had my third loading dose, but am very very nervous of the whole injection procedure. I know I need to get used to it, but it worries me for days beforehand. The difference after one injection was impressive, but no real change after that. I am seeing the consultant next time, but would be interested to learn of others’ experiences. Thank you.

There is lots of information, lots of stories on The Macular Society website and they also run a scheme for "treatment buddies". You can get paired up with someone having similar treatment and have one to one discussions.

Thank you, the treatment buddy idea sounds excellent- I’ll look into it.
