Each year, more than 400,000 Americans are diagnosed with macular degeneration, an age-related, progressive eye disease that immediately raises a fear of total blindness. The good news is: YOU ARE NOT GOING BLIND. However, you are dealing with a disease that causes serious visual impairment—an inconvenience the author, Dr. Yale Solomon, is personally familiar with because he has macular degeneration. Now this respected ophthalmologist offers a compassionate and understanding look at both the medical and human side of macular degeneration and ways to meet the challenge of its impact on everyday life. This newly updated edition includes a comprehensive appendix of associations, organizations and foundations, large-print publishers, audio and video resources, and a helpful list of suppliers of products and services.

About the Author:

Dr. Yale Solomon, M.D. has been a practicing ophthalmologist in Bay Shore, New York, since 1956, and he has specialized in treating macular degeneration and other low-vision patients. He is an associate clinical professor of ophthalmology at SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine on Long Island and is founder and president of Volunteer Eye Surgeons International, a philanthropic organization that since 1983 has sent U.S. ophthalmologists to Third World countries on medical mercy missions. Dr. Solomon is director emeritus of ophthalmology at Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, and senior ophthalmologist at Good Samaritan Hospital, West Islip, New York. In 1990, at age 64, Dr. Solomon was diagnosed with macular degeneration in his left eye, and in the summer of 1997 macular degeneration began affecting vision in his right eye. Dr. Solomon lives in Brightwaters, New York, with his wife, Isobel. They have four grown sons and ten grandchildren.

Jonathan D. Solomon is an independent marketing consultant and business writer. Prior to launching his consulting business, Mr. Solomon served for five years as vice president of marketing for Optical Data, a company that produces technology-based educational programs for schools. Mr. Solomon is adjunct professor of communications at the Rutgers Graduate School of Management in Newark, New Jersey, where he teaches a course in writing and oral presentation skills to MBA students. A graduate of Wesleyan University, Mr. Solomon also earned a Master of Science degree in journalism from Boston University and an MBA in marketing from Fordham University. Mr. Solomon, who is Yale Solomon's oldest son, lives in Westfield, New Jersey, with his wife, Maureen, and their two young children.
