When we think of all of the things in life that we are grateful for, how often do we thank God for giving us the gift of vision?

I find that often, we tend to take the things that we are given in life for granted, until suddenly, we find ourselves straining to do what once happened naturally.

We take the gift of hearing for granted until we find ourselves straining to hear the sounds and voices around us. We take the gift of sight for granted until the words on a page start to blur or the images in the distance aren’t quite as clear and crisp as they used to be.

When I think of Louie Armstrong’s classic song, “What A Wonderful World”, it’s hard to imagine a life without vision:

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I love you…

Each year, nearly 10 Americans are threatened with blindness due to Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) – a condition that makes it nearly impossible to enjoy the little things in life, such as playing games, watching movies and reading.

The good news? There’s a cure in sight!

Ending Blindness

Since 1971, a non-profit organization called the Foundation Fighting Blindness has provided funding for research on cures for blindness and AMD. Their innovative research is making treatments to stop and in some cases reverse retinal disease a reality!

As part of their new “We Are Ending Blindness” campaign, the Foundation Fighting Blindness has created a FREE PDF Packet to increase public awareness of AMD. This packet contains everything you need to know about Age-Related Macular Degeneration, including what it is, its symptoms, causes, types, treatments, preventative measures, clinical trial information, and more! If you are over 55, you and your family are urged to download this material!
