Have YOU Had

Your Macula Checked?

Macular degeneration can lead to blindness,

but an EYE TEST can save your sight!​

Are you age 50

and up?

Do you smoke?

Is there someone in the family with macular degeneration?

Are you experiencing reduced vision?

If you answer yes to any of the questions above, you could be 1 in 7 people with macular degeneration.

Why is Macular 

Degeneration a Concern?

Because blindness is.

The macula of eye is responsible for central, detailed vision. We read books, drive, recognise faces and appreciate colours with it. When our macula wears out, we see things differently. Wavy lines. A blurred or patchy area in the central vision. Loss of central vision. Eventual blindness.

Sadly, there is no known cure for macular degeneration at the moment.

That's why an eye test is so important.
