Tips and advice of the community

My son was diagnosed with juvenile macular degeneration when he was 7 years old. This is a very rare condition for someone so young.  He's never been given any medication. He is considering having stem cell treatment but he's not at the stage where he's seriously considering it.  He's had some counselling as SCT can create other problems e.g. Improved sight could cause problems for example trying to cross a fairly busy road or manoeuvre down a busy pathement .  The business or fast pace of cars, motorcycles and cycles can raise a fear factor that wasn't there previously.  The business of the pathements can raise anxieties at the pace and number of pedestrians.  The counsellor raised the issue that a significant number of people become housebound.  He definitely doesn't want to be worse off than he currently is. The consultant has stated that he doesn't know how bad the deteriorating will be and there was a possibility that he could become blind.  At the beginning of middle age period he did loose a little more sight.  He has  very severe  colour blindness which is also a major problem.
