I was really surprised, not in a good way when I was told at a routine eye test that I had macular degeneration, the dry sort.
The optician told me to go home and not worry about it as it was early days. I did go home and realised I was in shock - I couldn't stop thinking about it, I couldn't even read up on it.
I,m better now since I found this site, but I'm wondering if I should have been referred . I also take supplements in hope they slow the progression of this disease.
My sight as far as I can tell is the same as it always has been, apart from a dark patch on the ceiling when I'm in bed.
I hope I don't sound too much of a Mardy bum, when some of the posts are so much worse.
