The campaign continues!
With your help, "Give Your Sight a Hand" was a huge success at the AARP Event and Expo. We are continuing to build momentum with every support group, every seminar, every health fair.
We're doing this to save vision! Your two eyes work together so beautifully that something could be wrong in one eye and you would never notice it - unless you close one eye at a time!
Do it now.
Cover your left eye and look at something familiar with the right eye. Does anything look distorted or blurry? Then cover your right eye and look with your left eye. If you see vision changes, call the eye doctor and get those peepers checked.
Even better, go to our website and print the Amsler Grid that is there. Focus on the black dot in the center - all the lines should be straight and nothing should be missing. Distorted lines are an early warning sign of macular degeneration.
Don't forget to sign up for our email newsletter before this weekend. I'll be reported on the most recent research in AMD directly from the American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting. Don't miss it.
And thanks for your support - you've made such a difference!
