Our macular degeneration funded research
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in the aged population in developed countries. There are two types of AMD: dry AMD (also called geographic atrophy, GA) and wet AMD (neovascularisation). Dry AMD accounts for over 80% of AMD incidence, and currently there is no treatment for it.
At present, these conditions are incurable so more investment in research to identify potential treatments remains crucial.
