The Spring 2019 issue of Vision Voice leads with exciting news of federal funding for Australia’s first ever National Strategic Action Plan specifically for macular disease.
We report on a successful Macula Month awareness campaign and reveal startling statistics showing more than 60 per cent of Australians are unaware of the strong familial risks associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
We have an easy to prepare, macula friendly pasta recipe taken straight from MDFA’s feature in a recent Australian Women’s Weekly, an update on MDFA-funded research, information on how to listen to our new podcast series ‘See My World’ with Ita Buttrose, and so much more.

Please note: In track one, in the article on familial risk of AMD, the reader says: “People with siblings or parents with AMD are in a high risk category and have a 50 per cent chance of getting the risk.” This should be “a 50 per cent chance of getting the disease”.
