Your macular degeneration is advancing. While you are able to get around safely in your home, you’re having difficulty reading mail, paying bills and writing checks. Know that there are adaptive aids available to help with vision and eyesight difficulties depending on each individual situation. There’s no need to give up your independence and the familiarity of your home until you’ve had the opportunity to look at your options. Depending on where you live you might contact a home medical company or contact the local vision foundation who might have an appropriate local recommendation. With advances in technology even individuals with low vision can continue to perform regular activities with a little assistance and support.
