I know there was a lot of talk on ICELL about Judi Dench and her revelation in 2012 that she suffers from AMD. Many hoped and speculated that it would be great to have a high profile figure take part in our trials to help get the word out.
This article today claims she "had wet in one eye and dry in the other and they had to do these injections and I think itís arrested it. I hope so."
In no way am I implying that she was the beneficiary of our RPE treatment, but I did find it interesting that she speaks of these injections in the past tense, rather than an ongoing procedure like the available treatments we know about out there.
Dame Judi Dench Oscar nominated despite not being able to 'read scripts' | Mail Online
"'There were many times during filming where her sight was a problem for her recognising faces or objects, and often someone would jump in and help her move about so she didn't lose her footing.
'Judi was totally inspirational. She can't read her own scripts so her friends have to go through them with her or she'll learn them on a tape recorder.
'She was absolutely wonderful because she was totally open about her eye condition and would just ask for help when she needed it or apologise for not recognising someone"
