About

We are a dedicated non-profit whose life work has been to preserve people's sight and prevent vision loss. Through Education, Research and Awareness. We support researchers who develop innovative tools for early diagnosis, monitoring and prevention of vision loss. We support patients with macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other chronic eye diseases to better monitor their visual health, learn how to care for their vision, take prompt action to prevent blindness, and maintain their independence. We provide tools, monitoring journals, and educational seminars free of charge to patients, family members and caregivers who need support and information regarding Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy. These eye diseases are the leading causes of blindness in adults over the age of 40. They effect millions and millions of people all over the world.

Current projects

Currently we are running a patient AMD experience study. The data we collect through the interviews with participants who have been recently diagnosed with Wet or Dry AMD is used to improve and develop patient education. Our mission is to better educate adults 40 and older about the importance of vision self-care at home. Understand what AMD is, how to test properly (which really only takes 1-2 minutes with the proper tools) and knowing what changes to look for and report to an eye care professional with confidence is what will make all the difference in helping to prevent unnecessary blindness/loss of vision. We have found that our easy to understand education and vision testing tools, which have been tested through studies supported by the NIH/NEI....and we are determined to make available to everyone free of charge...are making a difference in everyone's life. We help adults maintain their independence through proper vision self-care.......VISION FOR LIFE
