I am writing on behalf if my mum who has dry AMD in both eyes. She is 81 and has lived with this for about 6 years. Like other people have said, it was missed and came as a complete shock when she was told and woese that there was not a lot of help, no cure. It was a kind of live with it, get on with your lfe!. We as a family try and help as much as possible with life, she has my dad who is 82. Mum takes Macushields too.
I have been investigating a Dr Quereshi doing pioneering work in london for people with amd. Based on the hubble telescope. Has anyone heard of this guy, anyone had the op he is offering? Yes, its very expensive but we would do this if it helped mums eyesight. Any info would be great.
Are there any gadgets she can tap into? She cant read papers, letters, do crosswords, uts very sad.
