      Hi charline924: Thanks for replying to me, my sister has the same problems like yours. she is with this problem for 2 years also and taking her injections every months, her doctor is very rude she does not like when you ask her questions she do not spent more than 5 minuts with her. but we have no other alternative but to follow her advice. now she wanted to send her to second openion in 2 months. I will see what the new doctor will say. this is all happen after the cataract operation the fluid started and the swelling started to apear in the back of her eye. I do not know what to do? I am afraid she might loose her vision.

      I'm am so sorry & trust me I know how scary it is. I went into a depression when I got the news. But my eye doctors says as long as I keep up with my injections that I will not loose my vision. She even said that she has patience's that have the same problem and they are at the point where they are not needing injections every month. That the swelling got stable and they now go every 3 months for injections. My eye was getting stable and I went from every 4 weeks to every 6 weeks on my injections, but do to me stressing a lot this past month over personal stuff my sweeling go bad again so now I'm back at getting my injections every 4 weeks.. My eye doctor said there is no cure for this..

      Hi Charline924: I am so sorry to hear about your depression, as a

      Social Counsollar I always advice people to try to avoid depression because it is the killer #1. try to lesson to music that you like every day for 1/2 hour. try not to let any body make you mad no matter what the problem it is. go out as much as you can with freind and enjoy yourself, this way you will forget about your depression and all other problem that you have. the more relax you are the better your eye problem will disapear. the nerve of the eye are very small and sensetive, some time the doctor do not give people hope. with GOD"s willing there are always Hope. I will keep you in my prayer all the time
