J S Bach Minuet 2 by MaHA Rocks (Macular Degeneration Association)
By 1740, Bach was struggling with his eyesight, but he continued to work despite his vision problems. He tried to fix his failing sight by having surgery the following year, but the operation ended up leaving him completely blind.
This video was done for the Macular Degeneration Association to help bring awareness about macular degeneration by MaHA Rocks.
Macular degeneration is the leading cause of severe vision loss in people over age 60. It occurs when the small central portion of the retina, known as the macula, deteriorates. The retina is the light-sensing nerve tissue at the back of the eye. Because the disease develops as a person ages, it is often referred to as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Although macular degeneration is almost never a totally blinding condition, it can be a source of significant visual disability.

J S Bach (1685–1750) was a German composer and keyboard player. During his lifetime Bach was chiefly known for his masterful organ and harpsichord playing; his great genius as a composer was only really discovered in the 19th century. Bach wrote organ music, including choral preludes, preludes, fugues, and toccatas; orchestral and chamber works.
