Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects as many as 11 million older Americans. While the disease does not always present immediate symptoms, it can result in loss of sharp, central vision or legal blindness when left untreated. 

We partnered with BrightFocus to focus on the importance of regular eye exams, AMD symptoms, and treatment options. 

To help illustrate the risk factors and steps to prevent AMD, we have created an infographic, that you can view below. A PDF of the infographic is also available to download here.
