February is Low Vision Awareness Month

A.M.D./Low Vision Awareness Month is observed annually throughout February.  It’s an awareness month targeted at spreading more information about Age-related Macular Degeneration (A.M.D.) and diseases affecting the eyes that could lead to visual impairment. Putting out the right information about A.M.D. and low vision is important to promote early detection and cancel out whatever false beliefs may circulate about both illnesses. A.M.D. affects approximately 15 million people in the U.S.
