Can my sight be restored ?
Perhaps some of you regulars here in the community will recall that I have stated in previous posts that I'm completely blind in my right eye. This has always caused me to labor twice as hard when creating my iconpackages. Soon after the completion of my last package "Dragon Fire" I noticed my vision was failing to re-focus and the world around me became distorted....permenantly. I went many weeks unable to read or type on my computer, and driving.....not happening. I was diagnosed with bleeding "wet" Macular Degeneration in both of my eyes. The future looked grim indeed. I went through a period of indescribable depression. Approximately 2 months ago I was blessed to be chosen to be a patient in a 2 year clinical trial. The groundbreaking new medicines are injected into the eyeballs of both my eyes with the goal of not only stopping degeneration, but to actually reverse and improve, if not cure the visual destruction. It is a 2 year program that requires me to get injections every month. Already after only 2 months of injections, I've noticed a vast improvement. I once again have hope for the future. I dream of being able to create art again, ride my motorcycle again, and remain independent. -- Ace --
