The Way He Described Macular Degeneration
Well, my grandfather was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration about 5 years ago.
I think everyone was in denial about it for a long time because to us, nothing was different.
My grandfather was tough, and he didn't like to show that anything was wrong with him.
One day, we were playing a game, Trouble, where you have to put these little pegs inside holes on a board.
He was having trouble getting a peg in the hole.
That's when we all realized he really had trouble seeing.
The way he described it was when you look straight ahead there's a black space right in front of you, but you can see what surrounds it. Macular Degeneration
sounds really scary.
