See for a Lifetime Public Service Announcements

National PSA Campaign Raises Awareness of Retinal Disease

Retinal disease can steal your vision, but it doesn’t have to. ASRS has released its first-ever national television and radio public service announcements (PSAs) to educate the public about protecting their vision from preventable blindness and vision loss due to retinal disease and the importance of expert retina specialist care.

In both English and Spanish TV and radio spots, America’s retina specialists urge the public to learn the symptoms of two common adult retinal conditions, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy, and seek care from a retina specialist promptly to safeguard vision.

Join us by sharing our national PSAs and help educate others about what retinal disease symptoms to watch for and the importance of seeking early treatment from a retina specialist. By doing so, Americans can safeguard their sight and See for a Lifetime. 

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss among older Americans, affecting more than 11 million people. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of irreversible blindness in working-age Americans, affecting nearly 8 million people. It's time for retinal disease to become a public health priority.

Watch our PSA below or easily share the English or Spanish version from our YouTube channel today.
