EXCLUSIVE RESEARCH VIDEOS
Since 2013, the Foundation has worked closely with prestigious medical organizations and their leading research scientists.
We are privileged to attend elite medical conferences to interview these scientists and have created a video library of their work. Visit our Research Videos to hear directly from those promoting effective treatments for diseases of the macula.
THE MAGNIFIER NEWSLETTER
“The Magnifier” is the Foundation’s free 8-page newsletter. In addition to timely news, it focuses on practical ways of coping with low vision offered by individuals and healthcare professionals familiar with the challenges. It is produced three times a year and made available online as both a resizeable PDF file and via streaming audio. You may access the current and archived issues using the Newsletter link.
Note: Persons and organizations with a need may request printed copies.
REPORTS are essays and short stories related to macular degeneration. Some Reports are summaries of published articles. Others are contributed by healthcare professionals on a variety of subjects.
We also invite people like you to submit their own stories … especially stories that may be an encouragement to others living with the challenges of low vision.
For your convenience, each Report is assigned to a searchable category. Please visit our REPORTS section often or take advantage of our “ALERTS” as described below.
