New for 2019

This year we’re also running a visual awareness workshop for family and friends. This interactive session, at 2.30pm, is designed to give people a better understanding of what it’s like to have macular disease and share some hints and tips for being a carer. No need to book.

“Informative, exhilarating, reassuring and very enjoyable.”

“I thought the day was very good. Good speakers, interesting, looking at problems people with AMD have that general public don't understand, for example, about not recognising people you meet.”
