Review for Discovery Eye Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

DEF has provided me with valuable and timely information about treatment options, lifestyle adaptions, dietary suggestions, and more over the course of the 15+ years I have had AMD. It has helped make an informed patient who can interact intelligently with my doctor about my condition. I have achieved a good perspective and much peace of mind about having AMD largely thanks to DEF.

Review for Direct Relief , Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I have been contributing to DRI for many years now because it always responds in a timely way when disasters strike around the world. It is staffed largely by volunteers so more than 90% of a contribution goes towards medical supplies, etc that it sends out. Ie, its administrative overhead is very low. It also has the flexibility to find and fill an unmet need that other organizations overlook. After the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March 2011 DRI found that the Japanese health system was up to meeting the needs of the victims. So, it contributed funds to NGO's providing support for housing, counseling, etc.

Review for Discovery Eye Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Discovery Eye puts out a very informative newsletter a few times a year. Judy Delgado has consistently responded promptly and thoroughly to requests I have made for info about macular degeneration treatments, etc. She runs support groups in the LA area that are very helpful for individuals with AMD and their family members. They helped my Dad, who had AMD, and have helped me, with early stages of AMD, a lot.
