Use Your Photography Skills to Support the Macular Disease Foundation

If you are into photography, and helping a worthy cause, check out the Macular Disease Foundation’s mEYE World Photographic Competition.

Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness and severe vision loss in Australia and affects central vision, which is responsible for our ability to see faces, read, drive, and distinguish colours clearly. One in seven Australians over the age of 50 has some evidence of this disease.
