Free Seminar on Macular Degeneration

A free Awareness & Education seminar on Macular Degeneration will be held for the Dunedin community on Saturday morning, 4th August from 10.30 - 12.00 in the Auditorium of the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in The Octagon. Ophthalmologist, Dr Harry Bradshaw, will share the latest information on treatments and the management of Macular Degeneration. Information packs will be available on the day and we hope to have low vision aids on display to view.

Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in NZ, affecting 1 in 7 people over the age of 50. Many people dismiss the early warning signs of Macular Degeneration, accepting vision loss as a normal part of the ageing process. Early awareness is the key to saving the sight of the 1.5 million 'at risk' New Zealanders. By 2030, 1 in 4 people will be over 65 years of age and living for longer so to halt a potential epidemic of blindness, we need to raise awareness through these community seminars.
