I have just been diagnosed with macular degeneration, am I going to go blind?

You are in the right place! We have a wonderful community of people here who can relate and help sort through all of the 'hard stuff' this disease can bring. We all progress at different rates and respond to treatments uniquely. With macular degeneration, most with vision loss only lose some or all of their central vision. Though that can feel scary as well, it gave me comfort to know that I'd still be able to see some things if worse came to worst. If you look at the menu tab at the top of our page, you will find many great resources and information to help you understand this disease better. If you have any questions or would like to share, please feel free. We are so glad you're here and are always happy to help!
