The Foundation Fighting Blindness, a non-profit organization that has been researching cures for blindness, specifically AMD, since 1971, has been able to stop or reduce blindness, which is great news for people over 55 and their families. While that is all well and good (boy is it!), they are still looking for ways to to continue their outreach, research and find cures.

Preventing the loss of sight, particularly due to Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), a retinal disease that is the leading cause of blindness in adults 55 and older, is something that could be important to every one of us at one time or another. I know my maternal grandfather lost an eye, yep, the entire eye. They put a glass one in for him. He never grouched much (which is amazing, now that I look back on it as an adult), and if you didn't know the story, you would just think his eye was a bit 'off.' You honestly couldn't tell it was glass. If he could have not lost his sight though, I know he would have been ecstatic. It changes everything when you lose one of your five senses, even if it is a partial loss, such as was the case with my grandpa. I would imagine it's never an easy adjustment to make.
Try to think of a world, where adjusting to blindness did not have to be the case. Imagine a world where there was a permanent and all-inclusive cure. It could happen, maybe. We can only hope...and research,and test and try again until the goal has been achieved.
