Where research is now

Thanks to teams of researchers in the UK and worldwide who are dedicated to Beating Macular Disease, research is moving rapidly.

Why is research so important?

We have some treatment options, such as anti-VEGF injections for wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). But unfortunately, for many macular conditions, there are no treatments.

We hope that new techniques such as gene and stem cell therapy will soon lead to treatments to save the sight of everyone with macular disease.

Find out what research is going on right now, how it works, and how it can help those living with macular disease.
