Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in New Zealand, affecting 1 in 7 people over the age of 50. 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. Many people dismiss the early warning signs of MD, accepting vision loss as a normal part of the ageing process. Awareness and early detection is key to saving sight.

Bring your friends and family along to this free event to learn more about this debilitating eye disease.
