Blindness/Visual Impairment/Maculardegeneration

Question
QUESTION: Hello

I am asking advice for a friend in her early 40's who suffers from Macula Degeneration. She tells me she also has pressure in her eyes due to glaucoma. Her vision is -20 in the right eye and -10 in the left. She also suffers from double vision and squinting. She has had surgery in her eyes and has had IOL lenses fitted into both eyes. She says she is slowly going blind. Is there anything that modern technology can do to help her?
Many thanks

QUESTION: Hello
Thank you for replying to my question. I have managed to find out the following information although it is very vague.
My friend does not know what her exact intraocular pressure is in the eye only that it is being checked every 2 months.
With regards to her double vision: her right eye is so short sighted that both eyes stopped working together and her right eye muscles got lazy. Had operation but this did not correct it.
I think she has got glaucoma she says she was having drops but they were making her eyes red raw so she has stopped these.
She thinks it is macular degeneration that is causing the problem, she says she loses central vision but its not the main problem.
She does not have hypertension or diabetes.
The only paperwork she has is her eye prescription.
She says her right eye can never be fully corrected because the function nerve was never fully formed as a child because of the -20 vision. She wasn't told this until after she had the IOL. She was one of the worst cases Ultralase had ever done.
