Macular Degeneration & First Connection Resource Sharing Group

06/08/13
Macular Degeneration Network
Age Related Macular Degeneration
(AMD) is the most common eye condition
among people age 50 and older. It gradually
can destroy the macula, the part of
the eye that provides sharp central vision
needed for seeing objects clearly. Despite
the limited vision, AMD does NOT cause
complete blindness; however, it can present
many unexpected new challenges.
Sibley Senior Association co-sponsors the
Macular Degeneration Network along
with Prevention of Blindness Society of
Metropolitan Washington to offer opportunities
to share the latest research findings,
low vision rehabilitation techniques,
information about accessible technology,
transportation, recreation and fellowship
to assist you or someone you know to
maximize independence.

Please call the Prevention of Blindness
Society of Metropolitan Washington at
202-234-1010 for further information.
