Grandmother had mac-degen and a few other problems that left her without sight.
I was diagnosed with rapid onset non-age-related macular degeneration about two months ago. I am a 58-year-old third-year junior in college. (I know, what was I thinking...)
The problem is I travel a lot, and have been away from home for two months, away from my eye Dr team.
Is there anything I should be doing? I am taking a lot of breaks from the computer and taking a macular degeneration eye health supplement. That is pretty much all I know to do on my own.
I am scared that I won't be able to finish my last year next year.
You know on Facebook, your memories pop up? Two years ago, I posted, "The neon zigzags are starting. They must be too long on the computer." I noticed it, but still thought it was eye strain, the grays that came after the neons.
It is like a great big "C " with neon on the left and gray on the inside.
I appreciate this group; I have read quite a few entries.
Thanks in advance,
