The path of one step forward with dry AMD
(San Angelo TX)
About 6 months ago I was diagnosed with intermediate dry AMD. I am 56 years old.
I had the floaters, and now having light sparkles with different light variants. Just this week I started to notice the wavy lines on my computer, (some of the software are in grids and squares.)
The other night I was talking to my husband and the door frame behind him seemed to be wavy. I also noticed at times the walls seem like they are convexed, I keep thinking they are my glasses and my prescription has changed. I keep taking off my glasses thinking this will work, because it comes, it goes, just as the blurry vision.
As an Occupational Therapist I think I should get prepared just in case. I work in pediatrics and I am wondering if this keeps progressing how am I going to work? Or what adaptations will I learn. I live in a small community and low-vision rehab is not close.
I guess the main question we all ask, how long until I loose my central vision?
