PSA: AFB Website for Senior Citizens

The American Federation for the Blind has launched a Senior Site for the growing population of people who go blind from such eye diseases as age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. The site is geared toward baby boomers, but if you are suffering a vision loss of some kind, it is useful for anyone. It offers tips people can use to maintain their independence.

Me: I was trying to keep that note free of rehabilitation catch-phrases, but one crept in there anyway, at the very end. *sigh*

I also really dislike the term 'senior citizen.' Once I get old, I would rather be called 'elderly.'
