What is Age Related Macular Degeneration?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (commonly referred to as AMD) is the leading cause of sight loss for those aged over 50 in Ireland.1

Over 7,000 new cases of Age-Related Macular Degeneration are diagnosed every year in Ireland, often at a stage when damage has already been caused to vision.1

Early diagnosis by an eye care professional can allow for treatment and prevent any further deterioration.

As part of AMD Awareness Week, FREE Age Related Macular Degeneration testing is available at locations nationwide from Monday 10th to Sunday 16th September.
