Hi I’m new here as well. I’m 60 years old and was diagnosed with wet AMD in both eyes over 6 years ago. I also have early stages glaucoma and due to a recent fall I now have posterior vitreous detachment in what was the better of my eyes. I had finish working in April this year due to my sight loss and was able to claim contribution based ESA. I have now got a medical assessment just after Christmas and I was wondering if anyone had any experience of the assessment. One of the things I will be asked apparently is if I can read 16 point text, which I can’t but could I with a magnifier I’m not sure. RNIB say in their info. give examples as to when it wouldn’t be practical to use a medical - any ideas? I would be grateful for any advice as I’m worried that by stressing about this assessment it is going to spoil my Christmas.
