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.

Register for our monthly webinars

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).

The second webinar is uploaded directly to our YouTube channel on the last Thursday of every month, and focuses more specifically on inherited macular conditions as well as issues affecting anyone of working age.

Please share any questions you would like our guests to address in our upcoming webinars. Send them to mymacularandme@macularsociety.org.

Exploring Valeda light therapy for AMD

In May we will be delving into the science behind Valeda light therapy for treating age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

In this session, we’ll be joined Professor Tim Jackson, consultant ophthalmic surgeon from King’s College Hospital, to explore the science behind the Valeda photobiomodulation technique. The therapy uses three wavelengths of light to stimulate the layer of cells in the back of the eye called the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), to keep them healthy for longer.

Professor Jackson will also discuss the data from the LIGHTSITE III clinical trial in more detail. The small study on 100 participants, with early and intermediate dry AMD, aimed to assess the impact of the therapy on visual outcomes and early changes to the back to the eye, as well as the development of late-stage dry AMD, known as geographic atrophy (GA).

This webinar will be taking place on Tuesday 21 May at 7pm. 

Our second webinar will be released on our YouTube channel from Thursday 30 May.
