Description of The Societal Impact of Age-related Macular Degeneration: Use of Social Support Resources Differs by the Severity of the Impairment



Abstract: Objective and subjective severity of visual impairment were examined in relation to the receipt of social support over time among 384 adults with age-related macular degeneration. Both types of impairment were related to greater family support, with those with discrepant subjective and objective impairment (high and low, respectively) reporting the most instrumental support.
