Brief description Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of blindness. Dietary modifications are important in preventing AMD and slowing its progression. Yet, patients have inadequate explanation from eye care clinicians, as well as information/ knowledge regarding diet and AMD. Telephone coaching is proven to improve adherence to dietary recommendations. Hence, my TRIP Fellowship aims to improve dietary behaviours of AMD patients by implementing and evaluating a telephone coaching program.
