The Macular Society is the leading charity fighting to end sight loss caused by macular disease.
Every day over 200 people in the UK face the shock of a macular disease diagnosis. Macular disease can rob people of their independence, leaving them unable to drive, read or recognise the faces of their family and friends.
Our members tell us what a profoundly isolating condition it is. People with macular disease are seven times more likely to feel distressed or depressed.
We help people adapt to life with sight loss, regain their confidence and independence and take back control of their lives. We operate nationally, with volunteers providing peer support in hundreds of local communities.
We are one of the few sight loss charities that actively fund and support medical research into macular disease. This is the research that will one day find a cure. Our work is solely funded by donations and gifts in Wills.
Gifts in Wills fund a third of all our macular research and one in three calls to our helpline.
