Diagnosis
AMD

Right Eye. Left eye showing signs.

Eye Color
Brown

Age at Diagnosis
78

Acuity
20/70 (left), 20/400 (right).

Treatment
Taking antioxidants (Ocuvite). Sunglasses. May need Avastin soon.

Prognosis or Current State of Vision
Right eye almost useless. Left eye is hauling the load. Indications in the left eye. RS recommending Avastin shots if it progresses.

Positive Effects
Working on software development for a PC to alert users to the need for professional aid. Many diseases (including AMD and Glaucoma) can be controlled if caught in the early stages. Hope to complete my book on Alternaitve Dispute Resolution Online (ADRO). Add this to your acronymania. Run a number of websites. Getting more difficult to do.

Adaptations
Don't take my boats out and think I may sell the bigger one: 32 ft. Trojan. Reduced travel. Use a lot of software help. Find the Maxi-Aids tool bar with the plus/minus very helpful. Do an awful lot of cut and paste to Word in order to blow up to a readable size.

More About Me
Married since 1947 to Mary Ellen (Mel). Three grown daughter and two brand new grandchildren: one 21 and the other 16. We acquired them when my middle daughter (Vickie) married a widower. Her first marriage at age 53. Favorite pastimes: Playing on the computer.
