Is the left eye vision darker all around or are there particular blind spots?
If she covers the right eye, what can she see? Faces? TV? Read?
She reports all around in the left eye. No blind spots and I asked her directly.
I will ask her about what she can do covering her right eye BRB I did test her with her covering one eye at a time. brb
YES, she can read easily with the left eye. Could it be exposure to any bright sunlight?
With wet AMD, there is usually bleeding and fluid collection under the retina.
and this would be reflected in the AMSLER grid as you correctly utilized.
Wet AMD can wait until the next business day.
Other things to consider is a vascular blockage, but usually vision is much worse.
Retinal detachments usually start in the periphery and comes over the vision like a shade or curtain.ff
Since her reading vision is good and her complaint is dim vision, it can possibly related to dry eyes.
Similar to a clear window pain, it can sometimes get foggy and dim the vision somewhat.
You can try artificial tears to see if it helps.
Use regular artificial tears such as systane or refresh.
