Prevent Age-Related Macular Degeneration – Fighting Blindness

Disclosure: Sharing this PSA (blogpost) for Foundation for Fighting Blindness via FrontGate in exchange for compensation.



Every year nearly 10 million Americans go blind due to AMD or Age-related Macular Degeneration, but a cure is in sight! 

Since the year of my birth, 1971, Foundation Fighting Blindness has provided funding for research on cures for blindness with intense focus on AMD. In fact, with the research FFB has already made possible, treatments to stop and in some cases even reverse retinal disease is a reality. This is great news for people over 55 and their families. With AMD it is nearly impossible for grandparents to enjoy the little things in life such as playing games, watching movies and one of my favorites, when I was little, reading to their grandchildren. I know I used to enjoy being able to do things with my grandparents and would have missed out had they had this battle. 

Download the FREE PDF Packet as part of the Driving Research & Saving Sight campaign that is being used to increase public awareness of AMD. The packet shares everything you want to know and more about Age-Related Macular Degeneration which includes causes, what it is, treatment, etc. Those that are over 55 and their families that care to save sight are encouraged to download this material! Speak to your family and friends about this. Once the vision goes it is challenging to get it back. Spread the word about AMD and possibly save the vision of someone you love.
