EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR SIGHT: Simple, Tasty Recipes that Help
Reduce the Risk of Vision Loss From Macular Degeneration



AMDF shows those living with the disease how they can still live a full life, with one example being The Vision and Art Project, which brings together visual artwork and writings on art that are compelling and beautiful in and of themselves, with the belief that the struggle with macular degeneration, like any challenge in life, is part of a larger whole and is inseparable from great and original achievement.

It affects more than 10 million Americans and is the leading cause of vision loss – and, at present, Macular Degeneration is considered an incurable eye disease.

The AMERICAN MACULAR DEGENERATION FOUNDATION (AMDF) is a non-profit organization committed to the prevention, treatment, and cure of this disease that affects more Americans than cataracts and glaucoma combined. The AMDF not only offers hope and support to those with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the organization also supports a national research agenda that makes allies of the scientific community, the government, and people and their families who are living with the disease.

AMDF recently teamed up with cookbook author Jennifer Trainer-Thompson and Johanna M. Seddon, MD, ScM, who is founding director of the Ophthalmic Epidemiology and Genetics Service at the New England Eye Center, Tufts Medical Center, to produce Eat Right For Your Sight: Simple, Tasty Recipes that Help Reduce the Risk of Vision Loss From Macular Degeneration

AMDF is also a sponsor of National Kale Day, which takes place Oct. 11. The organization will also be an exhibitor at the The Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo, held Oct. 3-6.
