That's hard news for you. I hope you can slow the disease down with supplements. My dad has had good luck with that. Got to wonder about all these drugs we take sometimes, but then again it might have happened without. Best wishes to you and your precious eyes.

I do not know of a specific condition like Macular Degeneration being linked to Lyrica use, although eye sight changes are noted as a possible side effect. Here is a link with listed possible side effects; Oral.aspx?drugid=93965&drugname=Lyrica Oral&source=2&pagenumber=6
