I have Keratoconus and we need advocates working for us to find a cure to this condition. The monthly newsletter is helpful. In particular information about the research.

I am very grateful to Macular Degeneration Partnership , which allows to not feel lonely people with wet AMD.
Patients are always interested if there are new treatments of their illness. I do not live in the U.S. and I can not take part in various activities organized for patients. But Macular Degeneration Partnership helps us to keep abreast of new research in the field of treatment of wet AMD, eliminating the need to look for this information on different sites on the Internet . It also helps not to tire the eyes and save some vision. And the stories of those who do not give the disease , moral support . Thank you again !

I learned that I have dry macular degenerative disease almost 3years ago. I was told not to worry. The a year later my sight in my right eye became wavy, went back to my eye doctor. He referred me to a specialist . After an exam was told to either get a sho in eye or be blind in a couple of days. Took the shot, that night I had twitching on right side if my face. Did not go back. Found website for age related macular degenerative and have learned a lot more. Learned that there are different forms of dry. Learned that there is a chart to use. Had to request for one from , eye doc. Tried to tell me I didn't need one. I rely on this organization for lots of info.

I have been attending the monthly meetings the Macular Degeneration Partnership gives at my local Senior Center for the last 4 months. I was diagnosed with AMD two years ago and then Wet AMD in my left eye four months ago. These meetings have been life changing as they have enabled me to understand the condition better and to have a more positive attitude toward it. I have received an unbelievable amount of helpful information as well as having the opportunity to meet other people with AMD and share our experiences. The guest speakers have also been very helpful.

Thank you Macular Degeneration Partnership and Discovery Eye Foundation for making such a difference in my life.

I have had macular degeneration for some time now and the Macular Degeneration Partnership has always kept me informed about the latest treatments and what the results are, which gives me hope that I might be able to use a different treatment other than the shots that I get now directly in the eye. They are costly and very uncomfortable, I don't like them at all but at least it has slowed the disease for now.

Discovery Eye Foundation fills many roles to those of us with eye problems. We use the website for information from the Macular Degeneration Partnership since my Mother suffers from this debilitating disease. We have so many eye issues in my family from ambliopia, to eye sockets that are not even that it is truly a blessing to find so much information on one website. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

The Macular Degeneration Partnership continually gives good information and help. I have been battling wet AMD in my right eye for 8 years and it is now beginning in the left one. I live in France and have the good fortune to have a specialist here who keeps it under control. Because this is inherited in my case, my 2 sisters are also readers of the MD Partnership site, and it gives all of us good guidance. We are very grateful!

I live in France. The Macular Degeneration Partnership has been a life saver for me! The modest contributions I have been able to make, qualify me only as a very small donor; but my gratitude to this association is huge! They gave me support, information and good advice every time I needed them, helping me overcome very difficult periods in the course of this cruel illness. And very importantly, they made me feel like I had not only qualified, sympathetic and readily available advisors, but also good friends overseas! The mere thought that they are there, just an email away, is very, very comforting. I AM glad of this opportunity to express publicly my immense gratitude!

I am a huge fan of the Macular Degeneration Partnership. I am a biologist and have learned much about Dry Macular Degeneration, which my father has. Thanks for your cutting edge research and clinical trials. Keep up the good work!

I especially appreciate the information provided by the Macular Degeneration Foundation about the latest research on treatments. I cope with the loss of vision caused by Wet Macular Degeneration and have had a total of 88 injections in both eyes since 2005. The knowledge that my children and grandchildren will be affected by this condition is very sad to know. I am grateful that there is hope for them - thanks to the information that I receive from the Macular Degeneration Foundation.
