Knowledge Saves Vision

What a difference a "commercial" can make! In the case of Mrs. H, in the Pacific Northwest, it may have saved her vision. "Without you, I would never have seen the retinal specialist and found out about my problem", she said. After hearing a radio spot, she realized that maybe her vision problem was not just a part of aging. She called later to talk to our staff and learn more about macular degeneration and how to cope with it.

Our tollfree "warm line" is a lifeline for many people with AMD and their families. There are not many organizations that provide immediate access to a friendly and well-informed professional. Every day, we help many people deal with the emotional and practical realities of vision loss - and help them to find resources in their own neighborhoods.

Thank you for supporting this important work. As Mrs. H told us, "It's wonderful to know that there are organizations like Macular Degeneration Partnership. I am so grateful to be able to talk with someone about what I'm going through. It's making such a difference!"

You are making that difference, too.
