My Beginning Journey

My name is Sue. I am 64 this month. My mother went legally blind at 83 from macular degeneration.

Four years ago my eye Dr diagnosed me with this. I never went back to the eye doctor for 4 years. I went to the eye doctor last week and have lost a lot of vision in my right eye. They said I have hard drusen in my right eye. Now they are setting me up with a retina specialist in 3 months. Not really understanding why I have to see a specialist. Anyone familiar with this?
