Veteran actress Judi Dench battles to save her sight

• By Agence France-Presse

Oscar-winning actress Judi Dench, who plays ‘M’ in the James Bond movies, revealed Saturday that she is battling to save her eyesight after being diagnosed with a degenerative disorder.

“I can’t read scripts any more because of the trouble with my eyes,” the 77-year-old told the Daily Mirror newspaper.

“And so somebody comes and reads them to me, like telling me a story. It’s usually my daughter or my agent or a friend, and actually I like that, because I sit there and imagine the story in in mind.

“I’ve got what my ma had, macular degeneration, which you get when you get old…. The most distressing thing is in a restaurant in the evening I can’t see the person I’m having dinner with.”
