Macular Society

The Macular Society is the only charity determined to beat the fear and isolation of macular disease with world-class research, and the best advice and support. 

With the help of our members and supporters, we:


  • Fund new research into a cure so that future generations won’t suffer from sight loss caused by macular disease

  • Continue to help people of all ages adapt to life with sight loss, by supporting them to regain confidence and independence so they can take back control of their lives.
     

We’ve been supporting people with macular conditions for over 30 years. We are the experts in macular disease and we understand its impact on ordinary lives. All the research we support is driven by this expertise.

Macular disease is the biggest cause of blindness in the UK. Nearly 1.5 million people are currently affected and many more are at risk. The disease can have a devastating effect on people’s lives, leaving them unable to drive, read or see faces. Many people affected describe losing their sight as being similar to bereavement. There is still no cure and most types of the disease are not treatable. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most common form of macular disease, affecting more than 600,000 people, usually over the age of 50.
