Visit our “patient portal,” a place where you can read about people living with macular disease or share your story to inspire
others! You can also download our Patient Charter, a bill of rights for patients with macular disease.
Age Related Macular Degeneration - or AMD - is an eye disease that causes loss of central vision, leaving only peripheral, or side, vision intact. It usually does not lead to total blindness.
If you have arrived here to read about living with AMD, you may already have been diagnosed with AMD, or you may know someone with AMD, and you are looking for more information and support.
You are not alone. Read and learn more about what others are going through, community programs, and local activism. We are sure you will find invaluable information whether you are a patient or caregiver.
