CAN MY VISION BE SAVED? SUMMER EDUCATIONAL SYMPOSIUM

 

On June 16, 2011, the Macular Degeneration Association (MDA) will host an educational symposium in Dothan, Alabama at the Eye Center South, located at 2800 Ross Clark Circle. The event will help age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients become aware of treatments that can help save their vision and slow the progression of AMD.

 

The event will educate attendees on the latest treatment advances evolving in the macular field, including the revolutionary Macula Risk® test, a new genetic test predicting one's likelihood of developing AMD. In addition to establishing an individual’s genetic predisposition to macular degeneration, the test is also useful in formulating a customized treatment plan for those already diagnosed with AMD.

 

Exhibitors and featured event speakers will offer participants many opportunities to learn about the latest advances in macular degeneration research, genetic testing, medications, treatments, and therapies. AMD treatment pioneer Dr. Michael Tolentino, renowned for developing revolutionary treatment strategies to slow the progression of macular degeneration, will give an overview of AMD, followed by a presentation explaining the importance of genetic testing for those already diagnosed with macular degeneration.

 

MDA’s educational symposium in Dothan will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to interact with nationally known macular experts, local doctors, fellow patients and caregivers in an open forum.
