Welcome to our blog dedicated to Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and much more!

Age-related Macular Degeneration, also know as AMD, is a condition that can disrupt the lives of many people, particularly those over the age of 50. This blog aims to provide referenced and easy-to-read content about AMD while mapping its interaction with other comorbidities and lifestyle exposures. Our mission is to create a supportive community where people with AMD, their loved ones and others concerned about their visual health can share their experiences, ask questions and help each other. We firmly believe that raising awareness and sharing valuable and trustworthy ressources backed by scientific studies will empower our readers and inspire positive change in their lives.


Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD): Causes and Symptoms

AMD is a chronic eye disease that affects people over the age of 50, leading to vision loss and even blindness. There are two types: dry AMD and wet AMD, the latter being more severe. Early detection is crucial, as symptoms may not be apparent. In this article you can learn more about risk factors such as genetics, lifestyle and age.
