That is very interesting stuff about question with Hereditary Macular Degeneration. I have always found it weird how I have inheredited Macular Degeneration in one of my eyes which they found when I was 20 years old.
I have had to wear hard contact lenses since I was 14 or 15 years old. My eye doctor has tried to get me into soft contact lenses at 3 different times in my life and for some reason every attempt has failed. I’m the only person in my family of 4 who has to wear hard contacts, everyone else can wear soft ones for some reason.
If you find out any connection between Macular Degeneration and EDS please let me know.
