Mom has been getting treated by one eye specialist for macular degeneration in one eye. Today we are at a different eye specialist for another issue. Mom: I don't know why he keeps giving me those shots. Dr. Qiu: They are to help your eye. You're lucky they have them now. A few years ago, they didn't exist and there was nothing we could do. Mom: But my eye isn't getting any better. Dr. Qiu: Sometimes the best we can hope for is that it will stay the same. Mom: Then why do I have to get the shots? Dr. Qiu: The shots help your condition. Mom: But it's not getting better. Dr. Qiu: You're really not getting this, are you? Suebob: The shots are keeping it from getting worse. Mom: I guess there's nothing they can do for me. Dr. Qiu: Like I said, you're lucky they have the shots now so you don't get worse. Mom: I don't know why. Dr. Qiu: I think we'll just write the prescription for your new glasses, okay?
