Keep an Eye Out for Your Health this Macular Month
This month of May is all about vision, as eye health advocates raise awareness about the risks of Macular Disease. Alarmingly, Age-related Macular Degeneration is the most common form of macular disease and is the leading cause of blindness and severe vision loss in Australia – it accounts for 50 per cent of legal blindness! If you are not taking measures to preserve your eye health you could be at risk too.
Breakfast spoke to Dee Hopkins, the CEO of Macular Disease Foundation Australia, about ways we can better our eye health this Macula month.
