Hi. I’ve been living with dry MD now for five years. There is all sorts of support available. Four years ago I attended the Macular Society’s annual conference in London. I’ve also volunteered for twelve moths as a hostess at the local Plymouth Sensory Solutions. I belong to a group on Facebook. I also blog on the subject. I don’t consider myself an expert on the science of it, but I do consider myself as an expert on living with it. So if you have any questions or want a discussion I’d be pleased to join in.
Hello there – I live in uk. I discovered a few years ago at a regular eye test that I’m developing macular degeneration in one eye. I’ve seen the graph. My mother had manukau degeneration and went almost blind in the late 70’s. It is a big fear of mine, and at the moment I take capsules to help my sight, hopefully. Can you tell me the support group on Facebook please? Nikki
Diet and supplements can help. But it cannot be measured. However I do have a very healthy diet. Lots of green veg included helps. But if you want supplements make sure you take the best. The Facebook group is very helpful for this. And of course we can bring more people’s awareness to this condition through our group in here.
