Macular Degeneration and Me

Low Vision and High Hope

National Eye Institute Video

What’s it like to see with Mac Degen?  All eyes see differently depending on the progress of the disease, images become more and more distorted: double, cloudy, wavy, vision, sometimes things jump in and out of view, a shadow at the center of the vision.  It’s difficult to identify faces and colors may start to look faded.

For instance, I can’t tell the difference between black and navy socks unless the light is very bright. Lucky for me I don’t care much for socks.

I have included this video from the National Eye Institute to give viewers an idea of the challenges someone with Mad Degen experiences.  Remember, each person will see things differently.
