Age-related Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 55. Maybe some of you, or unfortunately a lot of you, have heard of it, or have a personal story to tell about yourself or someone you know who has been affected. Did you know though, that with treatment it can be managed, and that sometimes it can even be reversed? That is a fact, and thankfully there are those who are tirelessly working together to try and make AMD a thing of the past.
Having a friend or loved one experiencing this (or maybe it is something you are going through yourself) can be very challenging. It pays to be informed. If you or someone you know is suffering, or you suspect may be suffering from AMD, click on the picture above, or the link at the end of this post to download a free packet from the Foundation Fighting Blindness. It is thoughtfully created and chock full of information that could prove very helpful to you! Note: it is not meant to replace medical care. If you suspect you have AMD, see an Opthomalogist immediately.
