About us

The Macular Society is the national charity for anyone affected by central vision loss. With more than 22,000 members we are the largest membership group in the sight loss sector and the voice of people with macular conditions. We provide free information and support to improve lives and ensure no one has to face macular disease alone. There are around 300 Macular Society support groups around the UK and beyond. We fund research so that one day we can overcome macular disease. 

Our Vision

A cure for macular disease in the future; excellence in treatment, rehabilitation and support now.

Our Mission

To fund research so that one day we can overcome macular disease and to offer information and support to improve lives today.

Download our 2016-2020 strategy

As more people are affected by macular disease it is more important than ever that we raise money to fund research and provide support.

We have a small number of paid staff and over 1,500 volunteers who deliver services and run support groups around the UK.
