Understanding Macular Degeneration During COVID-19 and Beyond

Your eye care should never take a back seat, even during a pandemic. Join Jeffry D. Gerson, OD, FAAO, Optometric Medical Director of the Macular Degeneration Association, for a virtual seminar about the importance of ongoing eye care during COVID-19, especially for those with Macular Degeneration.
