A couple of weeks ago I visited my eye doctor for my yearly check-up and prescription update, and I took a new test which was meant to identify the signs of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Well, I failed the test, and coupled with some of the imaging of my eyes, raised some concerns that I was developing AMD. It’s not an uncommon condition, but it is not seen in someone my age very often.

So, today we took some more tests and… my eyes passed the test with flying colors! Whew! There’s no sign of AMD at this point. I’m so relieved… the uncertainty was weighing on me a bit for these two weeks, and now that weight is lifted.

And how fortunate that tonight we planned to meet our good friends for beer and pizza! They didn’t know about my AMD concern, but inside I was celebrating. 😊
