After a GA diagnosis, it’s important to plan ahead as GA begins to affect your vision.

Something as simple as adding extra lighting to a room or adding non-slip mats under your rugs can make a difference with GA.

For appliances and items you use every day, consider

  • Applying differently colored stickers to quickly know what you’re looking for
  • Labeling your most important items in large print
  • Organizing items so you can easily find them
  • Organizing clothing so you can plan outfits

Your electronic devices may have many features that can help after a GA diagnosis, including

  • Settings that can magnify or increase the text size of your phone
  • Text-to-speech and speech-to-text functions that can read and write for you
  • Performing certain tasks with voice commands such as playing music or turning off lights
