HROTW: Taking a Closer Look at Age-Related Macular Degeneration

July 14, 2017   |   Alliance for Aging Research Team   |   Vision Loss

For our Health Resource of the Week, we’re taking a closer look at age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is a leading cause of vision loss in America, affecting approximately 11 million people. The disease can lead to loss of sharp, central vision and cause legal blindness, if not properly treated. This video highlights risks factors, symptoms, treatment options, and ways to protect your eyesight.

You can learn more about AMD through our resource page.
