Do you mean wet, macular degeneration (seeing distorted straight lines)?
If so, Avastin is a Godsend, stopping the disease in it's tracks. It has saved my vision. Treatments sound scary, but are easily tolerable. No anesthesia needed, etc.
As far as I know there are no alternatives to saving your vision if you have wet AMD/ peace

My mom lost her hearing in her left ear 5 days after her first shot of Avastin in her left eye for wet macular degeneration. Could there be a connection?
