Ryan, it has been a month since you posted, and I just now read the post,but wanted to thank you so much for your suggestions and ideas. I have had one more Avastin shot, last Monday, because there was still some blood left, and I am hoping that the worst damage can be held at bay by the shots. You're right, they're not fun, but I consider it a minor inconvenience in order to keep any sight I can. My only indication of damage now is just a small "smudge" spot dead center in the left eye that is only noticeable when looking at anything written, signs, written words, license plates, but I can read nearly 20/20 when moving my eye just to the right of what I am trying to see.

I will print out your letter with all suggestions, as in all things I always keep perspective by remembering how much worse it could be, these conditions such as mine will not by themselves cause polar blindness, but decreased vision, some people have diseases that affect hearing AND vision, or so much worse.
