In 2014 Macular Degeneration Awareness Week ran from Sunday 25 May to Saturday 31 May. The key message of the campaign was for those over 50 to have an eye test and macula check and to use the Amsler grid between eye tests to monitor for changes in vision.
Highlights included television coverage on the Morning Show, Weekend Sunrise, ABC News SA, Today Perth News and Win coverage across regional NSW, VIC and QLD. Widespread radio coverage was gained with an Alan Jones 2GB interview of Foundation CEO Julie Heraghty a stand out.
Macular Degeneration Awareness Week 2014 was supported by Novartis, Blackmores and Optometry Australia.
