    Comment from: 25-34 on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: July 21

    I am 33 and I had my 5th PDT with Visudyne and I also had an Avastin shot immediately after. I completely lost my sight for 5 minutes which was scary but I felt that having the two drugs together worked better than in the past. I was in alot of pain for 2 days but I felt that I recovered faster than after my previous treatments. I don't think my vision is improved but I think there is less leaking in my eye.

    I had 20/60 vision in my right eye , after my treatment my vision is 20/400. Do not use this drug for your wet macular degeneration.
