Dear XXXXXXX,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
with macular degeneration and Toxoplasmosis you are having very good workable vision,and it is very good that you are able to help others.
Since driving requires more of peripheral vision also,which is un affected by central visual loss of macular degeneration you are able to drive with some difficulty,which hopefully you will continue to do.
Since your macular degeneration is stable there is not much that you can do for tt
You can have anti oxidants and have regular check ups to take care of any further developments if they occur.
Please do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
