I found a wonderful website full of information about the retina and retinal diseases. They offer a free information kit about age-related macular degeneration. Go to our Helpful Links Tab and click on ‘American Retina Foundation’ to order your kit. This information was taken from their website:
The American Retina Foundation (ARF) is committed to improving the quality of life of all people with retinal disease. As the charitable arm of the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) and as the public’s trusted ally, ARF believes that no one should lose vision to retinal disease. We strive to save vision by identifying and funding innovative scientific research to better understand the causes and treatment of retinal disease, to educate physicians by disseminating cutting-edge discoveries, and to raise public awareness of retinal diseases, including ways to improve, preserve, and restore vision.
The kit includes valuable information such as an Amsler grid to track progression of AMD, recipe cards with tips for preparing meals high in eye vitamins and minerals, as well as an informational pamphlet.
I hope that you order your free kit today to learn more about handling age-related macular degeneration. If you have any questions, feel free to call our office.
