Macular Degeneration Support is a world-wide non-profit public service organization founded by retired educator Dan Roberts. Its mission since 1995 has been to provide information and support for people who are affected by macular degeneration and similar retinal diseases. Known more simply as MD Support, it is based on the Internet and also offers a public awareness program designed to reach people who are without Internet access. The founder and most of the organization’s volunteers are visually-impaired themselves. Their work is supported and guided by a 17-member advisory board made up of leading professionals in the field.
