On Saturday, August 25, 2012, the Macular Degeneration Association (MDA) will host an educational symposium in Asheville, North Carolina at the DoubleTree Hotel Asheville- Biltmore, located at 115 Hendersonville Road. The event is designed to give an overview of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), including the progression of the disease and the dangers of vision loss as a result. The symposium will also cover precautionary methods that may delay the onset of AMD and reduce retinal damage.
Event attendees will learn the latest treatment advances evolving in the macular field, including the revolutionary Macula Risk® test, a 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. This test is covered by Medicare and most major insurance companies.
Exhibitors and featured event speakers will offer participants many opportunities to learn about the latest advances in macular degeneration research, precautionary methods, medications, treatments, and low vision therapies. Dr. Robert Laborde, will make a presentation explaining the dangers of vision loss and the importance of genetic testing for both the general population at large and those already diagnosed with macular degeneration.Program Chair Dr. Kim Walters will be speaking about early precaution and prevention for macular degeneration and on how nutrition can improve your vision. Dr. Sean Skierczynski will be talking about the new technology for patients that have low vision.
MDA’s educational symposium in Asheville will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to interact with nationally known macular experts, local doctors, fellow patients and caregivers in an open forum.
