Head of the Macular Research Unit at the Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA), Professor Robyn Guymer, hosted an Age-Related Macular Degeneration information forum on 28 May 2015.

It is a progressive disease that causes the loss of central vision, and may affect your ability to read, drive, and recognise faces.
