Last year I finally talked my husband into going for an eye exam and getting some prescription glasses. His magnifiers from Walmart were no longer helping him at the highest magnification they sold. During the eye exam the Optometrist told my husband that he believed he was seeing signs of macular degeneration but that he didn't have the testing equipment that could tell him for sure if this was true. He recommended further testing with a Specialist. Of course our Obamacare Health plan did not cover this so we had to wait until my husband was eligible for Medicare this year. September 1st he was officially on Medicare so I called a Retina Specialist and they did not have an appointment open until November 8th. Now he has seen the Specialist and the bad news is that my husband does have macular degeneration in both eyes, the good news (if one can call it that) is that he has the dry form which is supposed to be better than the wet form. Both forms have the same symtoms and vision loss...the dry form is just supposed to progress an a slower pace and there is no treatment for the dry form. My husband's Mom had the wet form and was considered legally blind. I have been doing research on macular degeneration and having my husband take the Areds 2 eye vitamins ever since the Optometrist said he thought my husband might have this. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has this and how they are dealing with it.
