Benefits of Early Intervention

In this short documentary, AMD patient advocate Laura Carabello shares her personal story of the benefits of early detection and intervention for wet macular degeneration. Through interviews with Laura and her husband Joe, we get an intimate view into Laura’s experience with wet macular degeneration, treatments, and the importance and privilege of a support system.
