The Macular Disease Society
The Macular Disease Society aims to build confidence and independence for those with central vision impairment. We are the only UK charity dedicated to helping people with macular degeneration.
Macular Disease Society is a self-help society for those diagnosed with any of the eye conditions encompassed by the overall name of Macular Disease.
The Society is dedicated to providing information and practical support so that those with the condition may make the most of their remaining vision.
We produce a quarterly magazine, Side View, written by members for members and this is available in large print or on audio tape. Its content is wide ranging and includes articles on Macular Disease, low vision aids, the latest developments in Macular Disease research and news from our UK wide group of members.
We have a nationwide network of locally-run support groups around the UK. The helpline 0845 241 2041 will be able to let you know if there is a local group near you.
