Have just returned from the Opticians, where we discussed the merits or not
of using supplements with Lutein to ward off ARMD ( age related macular degeneration ) Ma has this and is registered as blind.
I have the beginnings of it but so far so good.
I am really worried about losing my sight.....who on earth is going to look after them if my eyesight goes?
So each month I buy (from Boots the Chemist) Icaps or Macuvite or somesuch and take one everyday.
It is as much superstition and hope than a belief in warding the condition off.
When questioned he was vague, in a 'well it won't do any harm' sort of way....but when I left I noticed that he sells a range of these tablets (at a much higher price) so I suppose he does endorse them in a way.....but really....am I silly to keep buying them?
