How does it work?

Membership costs £22 per year and the first six months are free. After the six months are up we'll ask you if you want to continue as a full member. You're under no obligation to join at the end of the trial and we don't take your payment details up front. Terms and conditions apply.

Six months free membership is only available to new members living in the UK who have not previously been members of the Macular Society. If that doesn’t apply to you, you can still join us today for £22.

What do members say?

“Thank you so much for the superb pack that I received. There is so much good information and so much I didn’t know. Thank you, thank you!”
