The MacularDegenerationEducation.org website is driven to deliver more information about macular research, information and advocacy. The MacularDegenerationEducation.org organization dedicated to educating and empowering age-related macular degeneration patients all across the world.
Age-related macular degeneration is an increasingly prevalent degenerative eye disease, affecting millions of aging seniors. The mission of MDE is to educate patients on the latest advances in treating age-related macular degeneration (AMD). However, our focus extends far beyond diagnosed patients. We are committed to the senior population at large, those most at risk of developing macular degeneration.
Our goal is to provide information about risk factors, genetic predisposition, and proper diagnosis, as well as preventative efforts and treatment options that will likely reduce the most adverse effect of AMD, blindness.
This website honors its commitment to prioritizing patient education by aligning itself with experts in the macular field, investigating retina-related scientific breakthroughs, and disseminating new scientific advances to macular patients across the world.
We strongly believe that providing support, education and empowerment to the millions of people living with age-related macular degeneration will improve patient quality of life, and energize the retina field to develop advances in treating AMD. It is our hope that encouraging knowledge and awareness will ultimately lead to a cure.
