Could you help your child’s poor eyesight?

If you have an increased risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) a simple, less than one-minute daily routine could help save your vision.

AMD is a disease that affects the macular, the tiny central part of the retina that lets you see detail clearly. The macula gives central vision, helping you to recognise a face, read a book, thread a needle.
