Hi Ive read Bills post about him having trouble typing with a magnifying glass to help him with his sight
A few year ago I was in a meeting and I had to get the lap top out to look at a document (I refuse to wear glasses as your eyes deteriorate as they get lazy with glasses) so I whipped out a small magnifying glass just to help me see

I then began to explain why I didnt want to succumb to wearing glasses

S Bob who was in the meeting with me ( who was a Dr of computer science )

Gave me a pair of glasses which at first i thought was just a pair of sun glasses

Any way they were amazing
I still use them today just for the computer to help with the glare as well (I just need to shine a light on the black key board )
my eyesight has improved as well
just a thought

Its worth a try

cheers

when I've done my post-op cataracts tests a variant of the pinhole really is a difference :o

I took your advice and bought a pair from Amazon. There were lots for sale from 99p up tp £30! (Though they all looked exactly the same apart from a slight difference in frame shape.) Anyway, I bought a pair for £4. 99p and they were delivered yesterday. Can't see much with them on, certainly makes it impossible to type these posts but I'll persevere and see if anything improves. Maybe they're not effective with diabetic macular degeneration.... :?

Hope they work Bill for you

with direct light coming from the screen and a light on the key board that should compensate for the darkness (as they are like wearing a pair of sun glasses)
I just thought I would metion them as they work a treat for me

thanks for the reply

For computer screens, anyone use these colour-corrected PC glasses ? I keep meaning to obtain a pair .

They're said to be helpful for the eyes, eye fatigue due to too much computer-screen looking .

With macular degeneration, MSM eye drops are said to be the way to go .

I remember also reading that daily candle-flame meditation regimen [10-15 minutes in the morning, 10-15 minutes in the evening] works wonders for the preservation and invigoration of the eyes .
