I’ve gone to Duke Eye Clinic in Durham (NC) since 2007 for Wet Macular Degeneration in my left eye. There was a leakage in the eye that creates a black dot that blocks sight. The injection I got in my eye stopped the leakage, though we never knew for how long. A needle in the eye sounds horrible, but my eye was numbed first so I didn’t feel the needle actually go in. I breathed deep and looked to the side so I didn’t actually see it coming either. The injections kept my ability to see and I would do most anything to hold on to my sight. I adapted to getting the needles.
Sometimes my eye stayed dry for a couple weeks, sometimes longer. Then the eye leaked again. The leaking is within the eye. It wasn’t visible or leak outside the eye. No one could see it just by looking. I could only tell by the black spot in my vision and my vision would become jagged.
No one seems to know what causes the Wet Macular. The Dry Macular comes with age. It was frustrating because I couldn’t find any reason why my eyes wouldn’t stay dry. Why sometimes they stayed dry for two weeks and sometimes two months. I couldn’t figure it. I paid attention to see if I was doing anything different but I was just being me doing what I had always done.
Dr. Fekrat came up with a new plan for me to receive injections regularly to build up the eye. At first it was every two weeks for a length of time. When no leakage came, we stretched to three weeks, By 2016 we were doing every four weeks but I was getting injections of Eyelea in both eyes because my other eye had gone Wet also.
That was extremely upsetting. I refused to do the “what if” on myself. I did think a move into the city was a good idea. Being in the country without vision to drive would make me a prisoner in my own home if the Eyelea failed for any reason. I put my house on the market and moved to South Hill (VA) in the spring of 2016. Most of my Soul Tribe lived nearby in South Hill or Bracey.
Because of winter weather I missed an injection appointment in January 2018. Either because of Eyelea buildup or because of the initial exposure to the Tachyon Pyramid and after one session with the Tachyon it had been seven weeks and my eyes were dry! It has been at least 10 years since I’d gone that long without leaking. Maybe it was a combination of both. I have no way of telling. But it’s what I believe.
