Register to join our My Macular and Me webinars

Every month we host two webinars to bring you closer to the experts. We are joined by experts in macular disease who discuss the latest in treatments and research and answer your questions.


The first of our monthly webinars takes place on the third Tuesday of every month at 7pm, with a focus on topics for patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

For our next My Macular and Me webinar we will be focusing on people's experiences of living with macular disease and how they manage to retain their independence. 

Macular Society's chief executive, Cathy Yelf, will be joined by patients with different types of macular disease to talk in more detail about the impact their condition has on their lives. 

Join our webinar on Tuesday 20 June at 7pm to hear from patients on how they manage day-to-day, as well as hearing hints and tips on daily living.

Working age focus

The second webinar, which takes place on the last Thursday of every month, focuses more specifically on different macular conditions and issues affecting anyone of working age.

For our second My Macular and Me webinar of the month, we are joined by Gavin Arno, senior scientist and researcher from the department of genetics at Moorfields Eye Hospital. Gavin is joining us to discuss the latest advances in genomics for inherited retinal disease.

Our understanding of genetics and how DNA works has grown considerably in the last decade. This understanding has transformed researchers' ability to carry out genetic analysis on individuals and has aided in the detection of defects and mutations behind various dystrophies. This level of genetic analysis may help to identify risk of retinal disease in patients and their family members, as well as identifying potential treatment options.

Join our webinar to hear more from Gavin on developments in genomics and why it's so important to our understanding of inherited retinal disease. This My Macular and Me webinar will be taking place on Thursday 29 June at 6:30pm.
