London: Oscar-winning actress Judi Dench says her fading vision has affected her ability to read and paint.
The 79-year-old 'James Bond' actress suffers from muscular degeneration which is causing severe problems in her vision, reported Daily Mirror.
"I never want to make much of it (her eyesight problems), but it is difficult, very, very difficult. I can't read anymore. I can't paint like I used to. I try to watch movies but it's quite difficult," Dench said.
However, the actress said she has no plans of retiring.
