New Outlook

Last updated: March 2022

I recently had an eye exam and was shown a picture of the extent of the macular degeneration in my eyes.

Shocked by diagnosis

I am 80 years old and my main hobbies include trap shooting and shooting sporting clays. Being right eye dominant and having the AMD being worse in that eye, it was quite a shock.

I do take the AREDS vitamins and hope I can find other things to at least stabilize the eye at this point. I plan to continue my shooting until I feel it is no longer safe. I look forward to receiving helpful information from this site.
