Odds are, if you don’t suffer from Macular Degeneration yourself, you know someone who is affected by it either directly or indirectly. In fact, this potentially devastating disease affects as many as 11 million people in the United States alone.
We see social media as a way for us to help people understand the benefits of AMD awareness, ocular health and prevention methods. During this Macular Degeneration & Low vision awareness month, we aim to make retaining critical information and treatment techniques easy for you. After all, knowledge is power!
Connect with us and other AMD awareness supporters on the very social networking sites you already enjoy spending time on. You’ll learn, connect and become knowledgeable about important topics like macular degeneration symptoms and treatment without even realizing it.
If you haven’t already done so, subscribe to AMD blog! Our blog (as you hopefully already know) covers a diverse range of Macular degeneration related subjects. From real interviews with top doctors to household tips to advances in AMD research, our timely articles can be conveniently sent straight to your e-mail account.
