Hope in Sight: Living with Macular Degeneration

Through expert advice, and the personal stories of several persons who have found successful ways to adjust to the illness, the video shows that life can and does go on with macular degeneration. The video gives way to help persons with macular degeneration to use the remaining peripheral vision they have, and shows specific low vision aids and assistive devices that can make daily tasks easier.
Using sample demonstationos, this informative video explains:

  • how the eye works
  • what macular degeneration does to vision
  • what can be done to compensate for decreased vision.

The video includes a simulated “house tour” showing how someone with macular degeneration can function more independently in the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom settings.
