A new educational web site, Childrens Corner, has recently been introduced. The web site is designed to teach children about macular degeneration, a degenerative eye disease that affects over 11 million Americans, through stories, interactive games, and other activities.
The Childrens Corner (www.childrenscorner.org) has general, age-appropriate information about macular degeneration and provides children with ways to help family members or friends with the disease. It includes an e-scrapbook and message board, as well as educational resources for students, teachers, and health care professionals.
