Hello,

Thank you for the question.

Glasses cannot help in improving the distance vision if there is wet ARMD. However the near vision for reading and writing can be improved with the help of low visual aids. Optometrists are trained in this and can help you select one which is suitable for your requirement.

If you need more help, please use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If you do not require further assistance, kindly rate my service.Thank you and best wishes.It was a pleasure to have answered this question.Views expressed are for information purpose only and cannot substitute a visit to an ophthalmologist
