Macular Degeneration and Me

Low Vision and High Hope

Compassionate Resources

There are many organizations providing information and assistance for people with low vision.  Many are national in scope but are useful to learn more about macular degeneration and low vision tools that are available.  There are others that are more local and I have included them here because they each have similar organizations in other states or regions.  The organizations I’ve chosen to list provide care, compassion and respect as well as excellent information and assistance.
