You are not describing a tear in your eye you are describing exudative "wet" myopic macular degeneration MMD and you got a shot of Avastin ( a VEGF inhibitor). MMD will never make you blind but it is a severe treat to you central vision. It does not affect the peripheral vision but you are at increased risk of retinal detachment which can affect peripheral vision. you will need to do internet search on MMD and read all about it there are two forms wet which you have also called exudative and dry called non-exudative. wet is the worst form and is treated with VEFG injections (lucentia, avastin, eylea) It is almost certain that you will need a series of injections usually 4-8 as the problem often reoccurs. There are studies on things you can do for age related macular degeneration but none have been tested on MMD because it is much rarer. It will not hurt to use your eyes to read or use a computer. Critically important you return to this retina doctor as directed and when directed. At some point you may want to go to Honolulu for a second opinion. You will have frequent visits so getting a retina eye MD near you is important. DON"T SMOKE OR USE MARIJUANA or use any nicotine. It dramatically increases the chances of both eyes going bad. Live healthy, eat healthy, watch your blood pressure, cholesterol, don't get fat all of these can aggravate. In 75% of the cases you can keep if from getting worse once injections are started. You will never go completely blind from this but you could lose your ability to read, drive and see straight ahead with fine vision. Read sections on WebMD, emedicine and other reliable sources. Good luck.
Good to know about mj. I have been a cannabis user since I was 21 but have recently cut back and now I'll just stop. Could my use of cannabis have made this worse? I will be seeing the dr in two weeks for an infection check up and than 2 weeks after that to keep track of the blood vessels. I will also look into seeing another dr also. Thanks for the help you told me more than my dr did after he told me my eye was bleeding. Is their any time frame on how long itll take my vision to deteriorate? Thanks
There is no way to predict whether the 'bad' eye will stay the same, get better or get worse and no way to predict if your other eye will have the same problem. Controlled studies on cannabis are very difficult but there are literally hundreds of chemicals in most MJ including formaldehyde. Vaping is also bad since its pure nicotine. Good luck
