I have been receiving treatment for ARMD for more than 3 years. Monthly Avastin or Eyela injections have been fairly effective. Both eyes are "wet". My right eye is still good enough that I can read and drive with corrective lenses. My left eye is fairly useless. I have lost mid-vision and anything I look at with that eye is missing pieces and extremely distorted.
I recently visited my brother and his grandson wanted me to try on his virtual reality goggles. When I did I was not surprised that I could not get the 3D effect but enjoyed watching the fish swim around me. The images were very clear. For some ereason I closed my good eye and was amazed when I realized I was seeing the same clear, intact, non distorted images. I made sure I was not using my good eye at all. We tried another app (dinosaurs) with the same result. I waited a few days and had the same result. I wondered if I could read using the goggles so my sister-in-law brought up a kindle e-book and I could read entire sentences - no blank spots, no distortion. My retinologist had no explanation. Has anyone else had this experience? Would some of you try this out and let me know what you experience?
