Believing is Seeing 20/20 Campaign
Did you know that by the year 2020, 20 million people are expected to suffer from age-related macular degeneration (AMD)? Since 1997, MVRF has funded more than $21 million for ground-breaking research to cure this devastating disease. Help us continue this work.
Please partner with us for our Believing is Seeing 20/20 Campaign in honor of Healthy Vision Month!
Here’s how it works:
Make a $20 donation this month and every $20 raised will be matched by an anonymous MVRF Champion Donor.
Remember, 100% of every donation goes to fund leading-edge research that will restore the gift of sight to millions of Americans. Thank you in advance for your support!
We also encourage you to learn more about AMD and how you can protect your vision.
Here’s what you can do:
Get a dilated eye exam. Getting a dilated eye exam is the only way to catch eye diseases early, because with many, there are no warning signs. Talk to your eye care professional about how often you should have one.
Know your family history. Talk to your family members about their eye health history. AMD is genetic so it’s important to know if anyone has been diagnosed in your family.
