Having Macular Degeneration can be devastating, emotionally and in practical daily tasks. This association has helped my sister so much and given her information she needed and support to get through it.

This organization was wonderful enough to help me find a doctor to the new area that I moved. They sent me information that I requested. The doctor that they recommended is superb. He takes his time to make sure that I understand my procedure and he cares. I love their website and Facebook posts. Thank you.

I was recently diagnosed with macular degeneration and was frightened by this. I saw that this organization was putting on an awareness program where I live Colorado Springs, CO. I signed up and the information that was provided that day was very valuable. Thank you. You really do not know all the good you do for those that have this disease.

Wow! If you can go to one of their meetings please go. You will walk away understanding more about the disease that you have as well as the treatment options that are available. Dr. Hamilton was wonderful and explained everything so you could understand and even stayed after to answer some questions. I finally got to meet Donna, she runs a great program and is very knowledgeable and helpful. We can't wait until they come again. I was at their Philadelphia, PA program this past Saturday. Thank you.

This organization is top notch. I accompanied my aunt to the program. I learned so much and will be able to help my aunt through her treatment choices. The doctor gave a lot of valuable information and it was wonderful to talk to the other participants. The food was great too! This program was completely FREE. I couldn't believe it. Thank you Macular Degeneration Association!!!!

This nonprofit is excellent. They are very knowledgeable and have great speakers. They provide all these programs for Free. I was scared when I was told that I had macular degeneration as I thought I was going to go blind. Not only did I find that not to be true but i learned a lot more about my disease and found out that I am not alone. Thanks to Donna, Dr. Hamilton and Macular Degeneration Association.

Macular Degeneration Association is my one-stop shop for all eye health information! They have the most up-to-date, trustworthy information. They offer real-life tips and tools for living a healthy lifestyle, which includes taking care of your eyes for a lifetime. I've worn glasses/contacts since age 10, and glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts run in my family. I want to do everything I can to protect my vision for years to come! Macular Degeneration Association helps people of all ages.

I attended one of the Vision Matters conferences and was treated so well. Not only did I get all the information that I could have hoped for on Macular Degeneration for free. I got to talk with the doctor after the conference and had all my questions answered and they provided a wonderful meal. The staff was super nice and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this organization to anyone with a vision problem. Thank you so much!
