How fast Dry Myopic macular degeneration leads to vision loss? I started seeing wavy with both eyes , in the last 2 months i have seen a lot of change with my eyes. I am 36 years old with -14D in both eyes. Any recommendations?
I would not assume this is dry myopic degeneration. You need to be evaluated by an ophthalmologist specializing in retina disease. OCT and/or fluorescein angiography is needed to determine if there is any leakage.
Thankyou for your response. I my retina specialist is doing OCT scan every month. Last appointment was 05/01/13. He said OCT scan does not show any leakage, He said its the scar tissue that causing to see waviness. I am assuming the cells are dying from excessive stretching. He said no treatment is there. I have to wait until the stem cell research is done. It getting harder and harder to read everyday as sentences looks like waves. I am a pharmacist. I am scared . I have seen four different retina specialist since march of this year. Everyone says , OCT sacn does not show anything to treat.
