6 months free trial membership

For over 30 years the Macular Society has been the voice of people with macular disease, helping them to stay independent, get vital support and feel less alone. We don’t receive government funding, so without our members, we simply wouldn’t exist.

Thanks to our 23,000 members:

  • We fund the research that will find the cure for macular disease.
  • We can continue to reassure and advise thousands of people each year through our Advice and Information and Counselling services.
  • We speak with authority when campaigning for better treatments, and are heard by the decision-makers that matter. 

What’s in it for you?

Each year, members get four issues of Sideview magazine, full of tips on living life to the full with sight loss, inspirational stories, and news from the macular community. The magazine will also keep you up to date with research into macular conditions, including the projects you funded.

UK Membership costs £18 per year and the first six months are free.
