Abstract

The Macular Degeneration Partnership is a coalition of patients and families, researchers, clinicians, industry partners and leaders in the fields of vision and aging. Its mission is to create an unprecedented collaboration among all these parties to disseminate information about age-related macular degeneration (AMD), provide support to patients and marshal resources for a cure. The Partnership maintains a Help Center on the Internet that provides up to date information on age-related macular degeneration, living with AMD, low vision rehabilitation, along with tools and other related resources. For patients and family members without access to the Internet, the Partnership also maintains a toll-free telephone line. Callers can leave their name and address to receive more detailed information and a free home test for AMD. MDP is a program of the non-profit Discovery Eye Foundation.
