The SupportSight Foundation

The Support Sight Foundation’s (TSSF) mission is to save sight for millions of people who suffer from age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and lose their precious vision. As a 501 (c)3 public charity, our goal is to provide patient education and access to low vision resources to help individuals, families, and caregivers whose lives are severely impacted by AMD.

We place a high priority on connecting with people, their families and loved ones who live with the daily struggle of impaired vision.

TSSF funds innovative vision research projects conducted by top scientists in the field who are on a path to discover effective new tools, technology, and treatments for people with vision loss.

Macular degeneration leaves a blind spot, severely obscuring the central field of vision.

Millions of Americans with macular degeneration struggle to read their favorite magazine or newspaper. They also have difficulty driving, watching a movie, seeing a sunset, enjoying an art exhibition or even recognizing the faces of loved ones. Their world is out of focus.

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision impairment and blindness in people over 50. The statistics are astounding.

“Once I stopped fighting my macular degeneration and accepted help, my life transformed.”
Charlie CollinsLiving with AMD for 43 years, International Inspirational Speaker

We host FREE public seminars across the country to provide patient and caregiver education and resources about the latest treatments, research and low vision technology solutions.

Our FREE newsletter includes important updates on new treatments, research, inspiring stories and practical information to help patients, families and caregivers so they may live more independently.

SupportSightSM Resources includes our toll free number to assist those living with AMD when they have questions and need information, outreach, and online and digital resources, referrals and access to disease-specific information, patient advocacy and clinical trials.
