This is a directory of care and services available to people with all levels of macular degeneration. The American Macular Degeneration Foundation is a central clearinghouse for this information. We do not endorse particular doctors, services, or centers.
Here you can find doctors as well as state agencies specializing in blindness and visual impairment. These agencies can provide vocational rehabilitation, job placement services, financial assistance, transportation, mobility training, in-home services, advocacy and protection, health care and Medicare counseling, legal matters, senior centers, day care programs, and/or referrals for other agencies which provide those services.
Low-vision centers provide services to the blind and visually impaired. Services vary but can include training in how to adapt your lifestyle to accommodate visual impairment, obtaining useful tools such as handheld magnifiers and assistive devices such as closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs).
