The print is very legible with simple illustrations to assist in understanding how to cope with the central vision loss. The list of references in the back of book are helpful in identifying resources both locally and more broadly.
The author also speaks to the emotional aspects of facing vision loss but with a positive attitude that an independent life style can be maintained with necessary adaptations. Prepare now for what may come later. As someone in the early stages of wet ARMD I found this helpful tool and I've recommended to several friends who share this diagnosis.I've also suggested my ophthalmologist may want to put this on a recommended list for other patients with the diagnosis.
No science in this one or explanations about what AMD is how it works. Just practical advice for coping with it.
Money well spent.
