The Macular Society is one of the leading charities fighting to end sight loss caused by macular disease. Every day over 200 people in the UK face the shock of a diagnosis of macular disease. This sight loss can rob people of their independence, leaving them unable to drive, read or recognise their family. We help people adapt to life with sight loss, regain their confidence and independence, and take back control of their lives. We fund the research that will one day find a cure. Our work is solely funded donations.
