Ninety-year-old artist Lee Allen, whose retina was beginning to suffer from age-related macular degeneration, realized that he could see the defects in his vision. For a decade he studied these defects and carefully drew pictures of the holes in his vision, showing the way they changed with time and with laser surgery. Macular degeneration is the most common cause of blindness among older people in the industrialized world.

This important book, set in type most visually impaired people can read, includes information about macular degeneration and comments from Lee's doctor and colleagues.
