Report calls for more funding for research into AMD

Although age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the commonest cause of blindness in the developed world and the numbers of patients affected will continue to grow, new research has exposed a lack of investment in research into the condition. The Macular Society is urging researchers into blinding disease, charities for people with blinding diseases and people who are vision impaired to speak out about the low levels of funding for research into sight loss and AMD.

The report has been supported by more than sixty of the UK’s foremost sight researchers, ophthalmologists and institutions. To find out more, and request a copy of the full report, visit the Macular Society website.
