I’m going to explain the treatment for your
eye problem. Thank you, nurse. I don’t know much about
it. Macular degeneration causes abnormal blood
vessels to form under the macula. The macular is at the back of the eye. You’re going to
take a medicine which stops any more blood vessels from growing.
I see. The medicine will be given as an injection
into your eye. Oh really? That doesn’t sound nice at all!
Don’t worry. You’ll get some local anaesthetic so you won’t feel the injection.
I hope not! Also, it’s very important that you start the
treatment as soon as possible. This is to prevent any more damage to your eye-sight.
