Thank you for asking your query at DoctorSpring.

A wet macular degeneration requires repeated treatment once every month. Its very unfortunate you are having problems on a holiday. If Systane Ultra drops Isn't helping you. Then I will suggest few drugs you can go for. These drugs act by sealing the leaking blood vessels and prevent regrowth of blood vessels . These drugs include:

I would suggest you to go for Avastin as it has less side effects.

There are few other options like Photo Coagulation and Photo radiation which you can look into when you meet Ophthalmologist. These procedures rapidly improve your vision and helps to maintain vision for a long period of time.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask follow-up question
