Before I retired to Sun City Hilton Head I was diagnosed with dry macular degeneration. Although there's no cure for it, Dr Wright helped me to stop smoking & to start eating healthier in hopes of slowing the degeneration progress. Over time AMD has distorted my central vision and made it harder & harder to read. Doc put me on to the iPad app for reading eBooks called MD_evReader which scrolls the text across the screen so I can read again. He's smart, compassionate, willing to discuss web articles & tech-savy.
