So happy I found this place! It is a treasure trove of information.
I am an 83-year-old woman from California with macular degeneration. It has been very slowly progressing for about 10 years, but recently one eye progressed to the wet form. I have had two Avastin injections and am due for a third next month.
It would be a good idea to learn how to use an app that reads text on my Mac and to learn how to use dictation. I'm not very talented technically and am procrastinating, even though I know it is sensible to learn now while I still have pretty good vision. It's annoying to have my brain guessing at distorted letters and coming up with the most amazingly nonsensical words.
I tell myself I can do it. And if I can't, I can probably find some kind soul who can teach me.
