Hi there, I'm new here as my Mom has recently been told that she's got Dry Macular disease following a recent eye test at the opticians. She's been assisting my grandmother recently who has wet macular/impaired vision so her own diagnosis has really worried her.
To make matters worse it transpires that her optician actually diagnosed the condition back in 2012 but neglected to tell Mom at the time. Understandably she's angry/disappointed about this as she could have taken steps to take supplements and eat more greens from 2012!
She's complained to the optician and the matter now has the attention of a director and she's due to meet him today as he 'attempts to uncover why this has happened'. I'm accompanying her to that meeting but wondered if there are any other avenues to explore in terms of support in this matter?
