Free Information Packet: Helping Prevent or Reverse Blindness Caused by AMD


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.

This is GREAT information. I have a feeling my dad is going through this right now, so he needs to read this info!

Managed or even reversed? That is good news.

My Dad has this. He has vitamins he has to take. His eyes actually got better when he started the vitamins.

My husband and I have just been sen by opthalmology recently and are lucky to have no issues. It is good to spread the word about AMD to everyone our eyes are so important.

This is actually something my father is suffering with. Early detection and going to the eye doctor is a huge step in preventing further deterioration.

We go to the eye doctor every single year. It's so important as we age. They can see things way before we may notice them. We just went last week and I'm developing a cataract in my left eye. I had no idea.

Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

I don't know a single person who is affected by this. I'm glad this foundation exsist and hving this info available hopefully will help the ones who are affected by AMD.

This information is wonderful! While I don't know anyone who has AMD, I'll bookmark this for future reference!

Pat Hatt said...

Knowing is the first step indeed. Able to maybe reverse it is a big win too.

Thanks for sharing! I have a friend that could use this. She is dealing with some pretty serious eye problems. I'll point her to your site. :)

My vision has never been great, so maintaining what I do have is very important. Even though I'm only in my 30's, it's not too early to prevent degeneration.

My brother in law suffers from AMD. It is a tough disease to deal with. Thanks for raising awareness. We really have to pay attention to what our bodies are telling us.

You can get those questions and more answered in the free packet. It's really detailed and answered all of my questions too.

AMD does run in my family so I do my best to take care of my eye health. It's nice to know there are things you can do to treat it or reverse the effects.

Theresa Mahoney said...

I don't know anyone personally that suffers from AMD, but I do recall a blogger friend mentioning that her husband has it. It's good to know that there are helpful resources for those who might need information about it.

Eye health is so very important. Very good information !

Thanks for sharing. I recently found out I have Macular Degeneration at my last eye exam. Which I was quite surprised since I am only 48 and a non smoker.
