The veteran British actress has had a series of injections to help preserve her vision after being diagnosed with the disease, which can lead to blindness.
She tells newsman Anderson Cooper, ""It just presents a difficulty. You might have a very bad hip, and you learn to adjust to things. I'm certain I'm not going blind. I'm still driving my car (although) not at dusk. I go and see someone all the time, and they test it...
""Millions of people have got it. It was blown up out of all proportion. It's not so good if you've got wet macular degeneration, most people have dry. Wet - you have a series of injections in your eye, and it cleared mine, and now I've got dry, and stem cell work is being done on that. Doesn't mean that I'm going blind.""
The Casino Royale star is adapting to life with the condition but admits she was fuming over initial reports she was going blind, adding, ""It made me very cross. It made me very, very cross, indeed.""
