Maculardegeneration and anemia

I was dxed with severe anemia 3 years ago and my vision has steadily gotten worse. I was wondering what was the link between anemia and poor vision. I have dry Macular degeneration, have had bi-lateral cataract surgeries and had a YAG procedure on the left eye from the cataract surgery. I have also had DSAEK's on both eyes. I have a serious problem with elevated IOP

    In fact, there is no significant evidence to prove that anemia may lead to bad vision. As far as I know, severe anemia may only make you feel dizzy for a while, and that's not like what you discribe. Personally I suggest you to go to your eye doctor's and have your eyes examined.
