Thanks Roger - apology accepted. I wouldn't have reacted the way that I
did if I had thought that it was just a joke. I thought that you were
taking the mickey.

Essentially, no. The central vision in my left eye has gone forever.
It's the same effect as if I had stared at the sun and had the retina
burnt out. There's just a black circle if I look at anything, but I
still have peripheral vision but I can't see detail (such as print) with
that. When I first developed it I went to an ophthalmologist who farted
around for a couple of weeks and then told me that it was too late to do
anything. A blood vessel had enlarged under the macula and lifted it
away from the retina.
I now test my right eye with a Amsler Grid and will go to a different
ophthalmologist at the first sign of trouble. I understand that there is
a new treatment available, but that only delays the process rather than
curing it. The strange thing is that macula degeneration is quite common
in the elderly, but few people seem to have heard of it. The cause is
not known, but there are suggestions that it might be caused by specular
sunlight where sunlight is reflected from water or snow. My advice to
younger people is to wear UV sunglasses when in such situations.

Me too. I find it's like waiting for the other shoe to fall. It could be
like that for you, too.
If you'll forgive me I'll offer some advice. When you make definitive
statements about products in this group it would help if you gave
references, preferably URLs so that others can follow them up if they
