Product Description
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive disease of the retina wherein the light-sensing cells in the central area of vision (the macula) stop working and eventually die. AMD is the leading cause of legal blindness in people over 50. From the moment of his own diagnosis, educator and musician Dan Roberts has made it his mission to provide the most up-to-date information about AMD, its effects and challenges, through his website at mdsupport.org. Receiving over 60,000 unique visitors monthly, MD Support is the go-to for all things AMD. Now, as a "patient-expert," Roberts applies his wealth of knowledge to the First Year series, providing crucial information for the newly diagnosed, including cutting edge therapies, and tips on how to navigate everyday tasks with diminishing eyesight. The First Year-Age Related Macular Degeneration is an essential resource for everyone who wants to be an informed, active participant in the management of their condition.
