Macular Degeneration (MD) is the leading cause of blindness in NZ. One in 7 people over 50 years of age have some evidence of MD and the incidence increases with age. Many people dismiss the early warning signs of MD, accepting vison loss as a normal part of the ageing process.

Macular degeneration (MD) affects the central vision impacting on the ability to drive, read, watch television, undertake many hobbies and recognise faces. Loss of vision impacts on lifestyle and independent ageing associated with the risks of: falls and fracturing hips; developing depression; inability to access health services and earlier admission to nursing homes. Early detection is key to save sight.
