Help Spread the Word About Macular Degeneration

*Disclaimer - I am receiving a gift card in return for posting about this. 

Are you or a family member dealing with blindness? 

We are ending blindness. Listen to these Radio PSA’s below about AMD from a Doctor’s perspective. This year’s campaign is, ‘We are Ending Blindness!’ Foundation Fighting Blindness is offering a free educational packet on AMD and it can be downloaded from this link. 

Every year nearly 10 million Americans go blind due to AMD or Age-related Macular Degeneration. The exciting news is that a cure is in sight! The Foundation Fighting Blindness, a non-profit organization, has provided funding for research on cures for blindness, specifically AMD, since 1971. 

In fact, with the research FFB has already made possible, treatments to stop and in some cases even reverse retinal disease is a reality. This is great news for people over 55 and their families. With AMD it is nearly impossible for grandparents to enjoy the little things in life such as playing games, watching movies and reading to their grandchildren. 

However, due to innovative research, those things are once again possible for many people but, we need to continue this outreach, support additional research and find cures. 

This is why the campaign focus is on ‘We are Ending Blindness!’.
