Age at Diagnosis
Glasses for now.
Definite change in vision and starting to progress more rapidly. Losing central vision, but still able to drive and such. Reading a book is getting more and more difficult.
Impact On Your Life
I love to read, and this is getting harder to do. I can adjust the setting somewhat on the computer. I can still drive at this point and get around. I love to knit and crochet and sew and such. I love to play with my grandchild and my dogs. It saddens me to think what if I can't see that beautiful little face anymore? Who is going to take care of me?
Not much positive about it.
I've been a nurse for 30 years, and I can't read the tiny print on the labels anymore. I'm scared. I've gone into home nursing, which is less stressful, but an extreme cut in pay.
