Recently I was diagnosed with Age-related macular degeneration. I'm 78 years old, female, with green eyes. I thought the only vision problem I had to concern myself with was Diabetic Retinopathy. I read that macular degeneration is found more often in diabetics, but my understanding is that diabetes does not cause this.
What are your thoughts about this and how do you cope with having your vision go south?
I had the first shot in my eye last Thursday. Not pleasant.
