Macular Degeneration In America: What’s That?

Living with macular degeneration can be scary, and what can make it worse is the lack of information and research available for patients and their loved ones. Many people quickly jump online to research the ins and outs of macular degeneration but have trouble finding reliable information. Even more difficult can be finding someone who can relate to all the challenges that come along with macular degeneration.

What’s the In America survey?

The Macular Degeneration In America survey is an annual survey on that seeks to close some of these gaps.

What’s the survey about?

The survey covers “basics” like diagnosis and treatment experiences, but also dives into the nitty-gritty parts of living with macular degeneration, like the emotional impact and the day-to-day challenges of vision loss.

All survey responses become property of Health Union, LLC, and are kept completely anonymous, confidential, and are reported in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually).

Why should I take the survey?

Each person that takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of macular degeneration and can help others who are going through it feel less alone. Sharing experiences in the survey can reveal how similar each person’s journey with macular degeneration is, as well as the differences that make each journey unique.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at takes your responses and creates an infographic filled with information about life with macular degeneration. But that’s not all – over the year, we publish articles based on learnings from the survey. Each article published, using responses from the survey, contributes to the information available to those affected by macular degeneration and helps them connect with those who have walked the same path.
