Dame Judi Dench: I'm not going blind
"This condition is something that thousands and thousands of people all over the world are having to contend with. It's something that I have learnt to cope with and adapt to -- and it will not lead to blindness."
Macular degeneration is, according to the NIH, an age-related condition that affects the part of the eye that allows one to see fine detail. It can come in two forms: wet, which causes blurry vision and dry, which causes blindspots.
"I had wet in one eye and dry in the other and they had to do these injections and I think it's arrested it. I hope so," Dench tells the Daily Mirror.
