Macular Degeneration is considered an incurable eye disease.

It is the leading cause of vision loss, affecting more than 10 million Americans – more than cataracts and glaucoma combined. The American Macular Degeneration Foundation (AMDF) is here to help you learn about and live with AMD, offering you healthy living tips, the latest information, and ways to honor those touched by AMD.
