Macular Degeneration NZ is hosting a free Awareness & Treatment Seminar in Palmerston North on Saturday 19 August.

The aim of the seminar is to share the latest information on research and treatments and the management and impact of living with macular degeneration. The seminar will be led by a local ophthalmologist, Dr John Ah-Chan and we hope to have low vision aids and equipment available for the public to view.

Macular Degeneration (MD) is a progressive eye disease that is the major cause of blindness in New Zealand, with 1 in 7 New Zealanders over the age of 50 showing some evidence of the disease, while 1 person in 4 over 80 will have some vision loss, affecting the quality of life and independence.

Increasing awareness of this age-related eye disease is, therefore, a very important aim of these seminars.

We hope to promote the Palmerston North event to as many local residents as possible to raise awareness. It would be helpful if those wishing to attend could let us know by phoning 0800 622 852 or emailing
