Went for my eye test today. My mother suffered macular degeneration, which meant she became almost blind very quickly. So when the first signs of MD were found in my eyes last year, the optician decided I needed a yearly test.
The MD has progressed a bit in the left eye. Mercifully it is the ‘dry’ kind, which can be kept at bay to a certain extent. We discussed dietary options and medication: the previous optician did not have a lot of time for these, but the current one encouraged me to look it up on the internet and gave me the name of a reliable product.
My mother’s depression at losing her sight is still very fresh in my mind (she died 5 years ago). I really, really don’t want to get like that and I’m determined that if I reach that same level, I shall be looking for all the gadgets I can get! I also find blogfriends like duckling an inspiration http://duckling54.blog.co.uk
Time’s winged chariot might be hurrying near, but I’m not prepared for him to catch me yet
