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.

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.

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