    Are you aware of the available resources for AMD?


    Healthy lifestyles

    The American Macular Degeneration Foundation promotes healthier lifestyles through its Eat Right for Your Sight Cookbook, its newsletters, educational DVDs, and videos. These can be viewed on its website (https://www.macular.org/video-presentations), including a public service announcement from actor Ed Asner describing in layman’s terms the central loss of vision that is the hallmark of AMD.

    The Macular Degeneration Partnership (http://amd.org) notes that as many as 15 million Americans may have AMD. The group includes both wet and dry forms, while the NEI concentrated its statistics on wet AMD.

    For people whose family members may be affected, the partnership uses video to explain how AMD affects vision. This 15-second video illustrates how vision slowly deteriorates until central vision is all but lost.
