I take I vitamins and also eyedrops daily.
Prognosis or Current State of
Unfortunately I seem to be losing my eyesight very rapidly. My doctor stated that it is because I have geographic macular degeneration in both eyes. My right eye is worse than the left. I have had four injections in my right eye but they have not seem to help. I have a lot of distortion in my eyesight, does anyone else suffer from this problem?
My great grandmother was legally blind but I do not know what the reason was.
Impact on My Life
It has had a large impact on my life. I cannot read or sew, or do crossword puzzles anymore.
