Our expert says:
She may be temporarily overwhelmed by the news ( depending on how the diagnosing doctor explained it ) or may have become more lastingly depressed and hopeless. IF her vision is at all impaired, she should probably not drive - but the doctor needs to be asked this, rather urgently. You need to ask him about how bad the vision is now, how rapidly it is likely to decline, and what the medium and long-term outlook is. Sometimes it helps to get someone to help her now, even occasionally, so she is used to trusting them when the vision gets worse.
