Get involved in research
Patients have a very important part to play in medical research. Over a million people take part in studies and trials in the UK each year. Without them we would not have the treatments we have today and new and improved treatments would not be possible.

Share your experience of living with macular disease
We are regularly asked to advertise opportunities for people to take part in research on what it is like to be living with macular disease and the impact it can have on friends and family. This can involve anything from completing short surveys to taking part in focus groups or interviews.
The Foresight project
The Macular Society is working alongside Action Against Age-related Macular Degeneration (AAAMD) to use ophthalmology data to speed up research for new medicines and treatments, including macular disease. Get involved in Foresight and help make a difference for those with macular degeneration.
