Hi sandbird, how distressing for you both, sending a big hug x

I suggest you ring the Macular Society helpline 0300 3030 111 they are very good. They have advisors and support groups and buddies etc plus can help people learn to use what sight they have left so Im sure they will be able to offer some useful support for your poor mum. My heart goes out to her x

Wishing you both all the best for the future x
