Updating The Home For Better Living With Wet AMD

Leading patient advocacy organizations collaborate on important new resource

Living with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) poses some difficult challenges, but a new free resource called “My Home in Sight Kit” can help make adapting the living space easier.

Prevent Blindness has joined with five other patient advocacy organizations* to share valuable advice based upon five key principles:

  • Safety
  • Color and Contrast
  • Lighting
  • Organization
  • Low Vision Tools

Inside each kit is:

  • a safety checklist
  • suggestions about six things one can keep doing while living with wet AMD
  • a helpful guide with room-by-room suggestions
  • an interactive audio guide
  • hands-on tools to help with applying apply the five principles

A complimentary copy of the “My Home in Sight Kit” can be received through the mail by visiting https://www.myhomeinsightkit.com/# or by calling 1-866-433-4300.

*This project has been a collaboration of Prevent Blindness (Living Well With Low Vision), Macular Degeneration Support, SupportSight, Bright Focus Foundation, Lighthouse Guild, and Macular Degeneration Association, with funding provided by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation.
