Edmund J. Alex (Alexandrovich), founder of the Macular Degeneration Foundation (eyesight.org), was interviewed by ABC News nearly 20 years ago.  This historic video does not reflect current medical science, research or therapies.  It does, however, demonstrate the dedication of Mr. Alex in his effort to raise public awareness of a then nearly unknown disease and bring comfort to those so afflicted.  Mr. Alex died in 2009 at the age of 94, but his legacy remains an important influence over those who carry on his work.
