Judi Dench is A-OK, everyone!

Amongst rumors the Bond girl is going blind after revealing she suffers from the age-related eye condition macular degeneration, the British actress confirms to Reuters she's not losing her sight after all. 

The Oscar-winning actress, who revealed she couldn't read scripts on her own anymore, addresses the issue: "In response to the numerous articles in the media concerning my eye condition–macular degeneration–I do not wish for this to be overblown."

She adds, "This condition is something that thousands and thousands of people all over the world are having to contend with. It's something that I have learnt to cope with and adapt to—and it will not lead to blindness."

As for whether her eye issues will lead to her retiring from the big screen? Not for this Brit!

In fact, she's joining costar Daniel Craig yet again in the upcoming Bond film Skyfall and is currently promoting The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a comedy-drama set in India.
