RELIEF: A Vision Preservation and Blindness Prevention Initiative
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of blindness worldwide and is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness for Americans aged 65 years and older.
The RELIEF initiative is an online learning tool for clinicians and patients interested in the management of AMD. By compiling up-to-date information on the presentation, prognosis, pathophysiology, and treatment options for AMD, we aim to provide users with a convenient resource that improves clinical outcomes and quality of life for patients. Our goal is to empower healthcare providers to personalize therapy based on therapeutic response and patient-specific factors through their participation in our online offerings and exploration of the Clinician Toolkit. Our Patient Toolkit is a handy resource that educates patients about their disease and empowers them to engage in their healthcare decisions.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please explore the Clinician Toolkit and Patient Toolkit links for cutting-edge information on current and emerging treatments for AMD.
