Invisible Disability: Living With Macular Degeneration (Paperback)
"I felt helpless...It was the end of my world-or so I thought..."
A journey of vision loss-leads to hope for others on the same path...
Macular Degeneration affects over eight-million people in the United States. Patients lose central vision, the ability to read fine print and recognize faces. A diagnosis doesn't mean surrendering to these challenges. Instead, understanding this medical condition will help pave the way toward a better future-for yourself or loved one.
Invisible Disability: Living with Macular Degeneration is uniquely written from the perspective of both a patient and scientist. Christine Donmoyer shares her journey with Macular Degeneration-giving a first-hand account of the diagnosis, living with vision loss, and explaining how this disease affects social and emotional well-being.
Your mind will open through this raw and honest story. Christine wants others to know they are not alone in dealing with the distinct challenges of Macular Degeneration- and offers straightforward tips on coping in every stage. She explains the benefits of Bioptic driving, how to advocate for yourself in the workplace and find non-profit organizations that will help.
