I am 68 years old. I have just been diagnosed with macular degeneration. The doctor basically stated that there was nothing that could be done as this was just a part of aging. He did suggest to eat more green leafy vegetables. When I suggested Kale and dark leaf vegetable powder, he laughed and called me a dreamer. I simply cannot believe that there is anything else I can do. I am healthy with low blood pressure and a good weight. I would appreciate your medical opinion. Thank you.
