Macula Vision Research Foundation
Macula Vision Research Foundation (MVRF), is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to curing macular degeneration and related retinal diseases.
Currently, more than 10 million Americans are affected by macular degeneration. This devastating disease is expected to dramatically increase over the next decade, impacting millions of Americans. An impaired macula causes a person to lose his/her central vision, creating a blind spot. This prevents a person from clearly seeing objects straight ahead; such as faces of people they love, words on a page, a checkbook, the ability to drive… limiting independence. Imagine the anguish of severe vision loss drastically changing the quality of your life.
We are dedicated to finding a cure for people who are affected by this frightful disease, restoring their vision and bringing hope to the many others with retinal and macula diseases. Over the past 15 years, we have committed more than $17 million to groundbreaking scientific research that will lead us to a cure for retinal blindness.
MVRF is especially unique in that every single dollar donated goes directly to research. The Karen and Herb Lotman Foundation pays ALL expenses for the Macula Vision Research Foundation (including administrative and fundraising expenses).
You can help! Spread the word about MVRF and the work we are funding. Connect with us on Facebook. Check out our videos on YouTube. Make a donation to MVRF so we can continue to support innovative research. Treatment and a cure are clearly in sight, but we need your help. Every donation counts and every dollar brings us closer to a cure.
