This week, all Macular Society members will receive their copy of Spotlight 2018. We’ve rounded up the latest research into macular disease and summarised the most exciting developments in a way that’s easy to understand.
• whether eye drops could replace injections as a treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
• more about a possible drug-free treatment for the hallucinations caused by Charles Bonnet syndrome
• how researchers are testing new treatments faster, using retinal cells grown outside the body.
If you want to know more about research but aren’t yet a member, you can get Spotlight each year (in large print, audio CD or downloadable pdf) by joining the Macular Society - sign up online or by calling 01264 350 551. Your first six months are free, and it’s just £18 a year after that.
Professional members of the Macular Society (including researchers, healthcare professionals and those working in the sight loss sector) get Digest instead of Spotlight. See what else our professional members get and sign up here.
