    Macular Disease Foundation Australia’s Annual Research Update takes a look at the most promising macular disease research around the world.

    The Research Update explains the research process, and provides highlights on research for potential new treatments for macular disease. It looks at research associated with surgery, drugs, stem cell treatment and gene therapy.

    The 2019 edition leads with a story from Australia, looking at the benefits of eating eggs if you have age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The study shows that people who eat between two and four eggs per week had a 49 per cent reduced risk of developing late AMD after 15 years than those who eat less than one egg per week.

    The Annual Research Update is included in each Summer edition of our free community newsletter, Vision Voice.
