Research into Age-related Macular Degeneration

What We Do

We are a small, but highly impactful organization, driven by passion to empower patients with macular degeneration by:

Funding Critical Macular Degeneration Research

More than anything else, people diagnosed with macular degeneration long for a cure. While cures for diseases as complex as macular degeneration can be elusive, research over the last few decades has led to significant advances in our understanding, and treatment options for macular degeneration. And more is coming!

Providing Macular Degeneration Information and Education

The best way for patients to feel, and be, empowered, is through knowledge. We believe that when a patient understands their disease, their options, and their outlook, they become empowered to make the best decisions, and take the best actions, possible for their situation.

Our understanding of macular degeneration is ever-evolving, and so is our website and the free materials we provide to patients and clinicians. You can help us expand our reach, and our coverage by donating today.

Raising Awareness and Advocating for the AMD Community

We can’t take on macular degeneration alone. We need policy makers to care about the very real issues that affect their constituents who live with the number one cause of vision loss in people over the age of 75 here in American. We need many hands to pull together resources at the local level for people isolated and without access to care because of their vision loss. We need family members and friends to know how best to help. And we want to ensure that every person at risk of developing macular degeneration knows about this disease, and what they can do to fend off the onset or progression.
