I've been reading these pages for weeks now, but this is the first time I've posted a question. I was referred to Moorfields by my optician who was worried about 'hard drusen' in both eyes and double vision in one. I have been myopic since childhood and now have incipient cataracts which so far give glare but no colour change, and which in one eye is responsible for the double vision. The cataract clinic at Moorfields does not want to operate yet and sent me to the refraction clinic to get an improved reading glasses prescription. The retina clinic at Moorfields said there was no damage yet from the dry AMD but I should take AREDS2. So I ought to be ok with all that but of course I am terrified - I'm 66 and an artist and writer.
My question is: what are your experiences with AREDS2 supplements? I have another retina clinic appointment in November - by then I will have been taking the supplements (Bausch&Lomb Preservision) for 3 months. Do you think there is likely to be an improvement, or is stability the best I can hope for?
There are some wonderful people on this site and I find you genuinely inspiring. I hope I can manage any eventual sight impairment with half of your courage.
