We are a myopic macular degeneration (MMD) advocacy group. We aim to engage is dialog with researchers, with the goal of helping develop new treatments to halt or restore vision loss. Approaches to the treat the diseases associated with high myopia are urgently needed to reduce and threat of VI.
We aim to raise awareness about MMD in the vision research community. MMD is an under-represented, under-researched and under-funded eye condition. Even basic statistics on the disease prevalence are absent in many countries.
We strongly believe in patient education and peer support. Knowledge about symptoms and monitoring vision changes can help patients get rapid care for the complications of MMD that have available treatments, such as neovascular membranes or retinal detachments.
