Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with macular degeneration at 45. It has been a very scary and life changing diagnosis. At present my eyesight is stable, but by reading articles provided by Macular Degeneration Partnership, I believe I will have better information when I need to make treatment choices in the future. Macular degneration doesn't run in my family, and I have lived a healthy lifestyle, so my risk factors for getting this were low. Never thought I would be dealing with this at my age. Grateful for any information that can help me understand and come to terms with these cards I have been dealt.

After receiving my yearly reminder card from my Ophthalmologist's office, I made an appointment and went in for my eye exam. During the exam I was unable to see the chart from my left eye due to a large black area. He immediately had me go to a specialist to confirm his concerns and I was told that I had Wet Macular Degeneration. After receiving some informational materials from my doctor, I went home and immediately look for more information on the internet. I found AMD.org, was impressed my the information that was available to me and registered to receive their newsletter. It has been important and helpful to me to have a better understanding of Wet Macular Degeneration.
