My MD story

I was 44 years old when I was diagnosed with wet MD. It started in my right eye, I did the shots for 3 years. During that time, my left eye started to turn. I also did shots, nothing was working. My right eye is gone and my left eye thankfully still usable.

It's a lifestyle change for me

I have drusen, I have a floater, it's a lifestyle change for me. Giving up driving and independence has been hard. It has been 10 years now and I have learned braille, have a new accessory called a blind stick, and I make the best of every day that I'm able to use what I have.

"Blind bucket list"

I'm crossing off my "Blind bucket list" and living life. A new life, a challenging life, but I wont give up or give in.
