Doctor and Patient Testimonials
The MDA is a great patient advocate. Seniors receive cutting edge education about AMD and its evaluation and management from leaders in the retinal community.
My company has supported & attended several of the symposiums hosted by the Macular Degeneration Association. As I've talked with people in attendance, many have commented how informative and helpful these events are for patients and loved ones dealing with age-related macular degeneration. I think the MDA is doing a great job educating people about the latest advancements and research for macular degeneration.
