I am a 74 year old male who has been diagnosed with macular degeneration. My only sympton is a loss of night vision. I am trying to find out if this vision loss can be corrected by glasses or laser surgery. I would appreciate any help I can get.

  • I have recently read something about this. Apparently if you eat KALE at least once a day, within a couple of weeks you should have better vision. It may be due to what you are lacking in vitamins. Eat more spinach and Kale. If you don't believe me goto some health websites, research it. I have the same problem althouth I am not that bad. You might want to check out the green vegetables and the vitamins they produce. Try kale out and if you don't notice a difference in a couple weeks, then it's something more serious.

  • although night blindness can be due to vitamin A deficiency, this tends to be rare in the united states. if you were to supplement with a vitamin, the best evidence is from the Age Related Eye Disease Study, and suggests you take a vitamin similar to Ocuvite Preservision (there are now other brands that are equivalent).it is not uncommon that those with macular degeneration will have reduction in visual acuity under dim lighting. check with your ophthalmologist to make sure you don't have cataracts as this may be the cause of the problem.
