Product Description Each year, more than 400,000 Americans are diagnosed with macular degeneration, an age-related, progressive eye disease that immediately raises a fear of total blindness. The good news is: YOU ARE NOT GOING BLIND. However, you are dealing with a disease that causes serious visual impairment—an inconvenience the author, Dr. Yale Solomon, is personally familiar with because he has macular degeneration. Now this respected ophthalmologist offers a compassionate and understanding look at both the medical and human side of macular degeneration and ways to meet the challenge of its impact on everyday life. This newly updated edition includes a comprehensive appendix of associations, organizations and foundations, large-print publishers, audio and video resources, and a helpful list of suppliers of products and services.
