Dame Judi Dench fights to save her sight. UPDATE: NOT GOING BLIND

Very sad. Very brave.
Also means almost beyond a shadow of a doubt that Skyfall will be her last Bond. I do hope they don't kill her character off.

Some wishful thinking, Dana Elcar on the tv series MacGyver lost his eyesight due to glaucoma and it was written into the series as he character also develops the disease. He remained on the show for two more seasons until it ended. However unlike Dench he was only in his mid 60s. She will be pushing 80. If Judi Dench was still in excellent health despite her eyesight, and the producers were willing, I could see a scenario for Bond 24 where M has retired due to her blindness but Bond still visits her when he needs guidance and advice.
We'll have to wait and see how Skyfall plays out but it does seem likely that it will be her last Bond film.

if this is her last film as M. do you think that it confirms that Ralph Fiennes will be taking over the role or do you think they still haven't considered replacing her?

Her legacy and impact on the Bond franchise will go un-touched, however her career pans out after 'Skyfall' which I think will be her last, as some others do...but this isn't confirmed obviously, just all thoughts about the plot!
Let's hope things can be improved for her, but she just remains happy and well in herself enough for many more years either with 007 or in other smaller roles!
God bless, ma'am.

She's released a further statement about this, talking about how reports are exaggerating her condition. As she says, this disease happens to thousands of people past a certain age and it will not lead to complete blindness...her vision will very likely be as good as its ever been after the competition of the operation http://www.reuters.c...E81J0X720120220
I was going to say she never mentioned it on Graham Norton's show the other night. We got it a week later than the UK, but it was only filmed on 8th February.
Hope she recovers from the condition. I wonder if this really will be her last Bond film? As mentioned above, 7 films is an amazing achievement, and she is the link between the old Q and the new Q.
