Age-related macular degeneration or AMD is the leading cause of adult blindness in developed countries and affects nearly 1 in 8 adults over the age of 60. AMD is a chronic, progressive disease that attacks the macula, a part of the retina that allows us to see objects located straight ahead of us. The macula is responsible for your central vision, which allows you to do things like recognize faces, read, and watch TV.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) has a truly emotional effect on both diagnosed patients and their loved ones. Director of Marketing at MacuLogix, Gail Schwartz, and her father, Galen Neideigh share how the disease has impacted their family. The AdaptDx Pro was not available when Neideigh was first diagnosed with AMD, but it is available for current patients. Don’t wait to make the diagnosis until it is too late.
