Now I understand why my mother got so depressed when her macular degeneration continued to worsen over the years until she lost 85% of her vision. Please note it is not related to cataracts at all. My mother was a smoker for more than forty years, and that highly contributed to her macular degeneration.
I'm so glad that I was able to have the surgery even though I have the leukemia.
Seeing is a wonderful gift!
