Most of my vision-centric posts on this blog so far have focused on the more dramatic of my conditions, myopic macular degeneration. But after seeing my ophthalmologist last week, I had the harsh reminder that the underlying cause of my MMD still comes with it’s own frustrations. Most notably, the relationship between pathological myopia and visual acuity.
Previously, we discussed some of the basics of myopic macular degeneration. I hope that helped provide those of you who have been diagnosed (or know someone who has) a general understanding of what this condition is. For my other myopic degenerates, if you’re like me, after being diagnosed you may have wondered: what can I expect at my macular degeneration appointments? So let’s chat about it!
As I stated in the beginning, one of the ways I wanted to use this blog was to educate people about pathological myopia and myopic macular degeneration, and giving a general overview of the basics seems like a good place to start.
