Just starting this journey
(Hidden Valley Lake, Ca)
I had a DNA test that said I have a genetic risk factor from both parents. My mother had the dry form of macular degeneration. The last couple of months I have noticed when I wake up in the morning almost a circle of a grey/blackish shadow is directly in the center of my field of vision.
It shows up when I look at the ceiling or walls. However this morning I opened my eyes and there was a black area right in center of my vision with almost tangled looking edges around it. Oh crap. I know that’s bad. I got up and googled, and found pictures with that same ‘black dot’ ( for lack of a better discription.) It said wet is more progressive then dry. I have already called and made an appointment for next Tuesday. I am scared silly. Any information from anyone going thru this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Diane
