Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

New Website for People with Macular Degeneration

Leading advocacy organizations have joined together to launch AMD Central, an online resource with information and tools for patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and caregivers.

AMD Central features clinical details about AMD and practical advice for living with low vision. Founding organizations are: The American Macula Degeneration Foundation, BrightFocus Foundation, MD Support, Prevent Blindness and The SupportSight Foundation. Find out more here.
