Can Coumadin cause wet macular degeneration?

My 84 year old mother has never had problems with her eyesight until she started taking coumiden for her heart.  She has almost totally lost sight in one eye and I am afraid it could happen to her perfect eye.  This has occured in about a 10 month period.  Can you help me???  I questioned the doc (retinoligist ) and he said she needs the coumadin, but is there another choice for blood thinning???   No one seems to be very concerned, but it really looks suspicious to me.   Thank you so much
