"In response to the numerous articles in the media concerning my eye condition - macular degeneration - I do not wish for this to be overblown," the New York Daily News quoted the actress as saying in a statement.

"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 learned to cope with and adapt to -s and it will not lead to blindness," she said.

Dench had said in an interview that macular degeneration caused her central vision to become blurry, though her peripheral sight is unaffected.

Media reports quickly speculated that the 'James Bond' star may be 'going blind'.

In the interview, the Oscar winner spoke of not being able to properly read scripts or see the faces of people she was dining with, citing her failing eyesight.
