Register to join our My Macular and Me webinars

Every month we host two webinar 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.

AMD

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).

Leading Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) specialist, Martin McKibbin, will be joining this month’s Macular Society webinar to share the results of the first UK AMD audit. The audit aims to improve the way that care is delivered and the treatment outcomes for patients who are attending NHS eye clinics.

The project’s first report has focused on patients who are starting treatment for wet AMD in one or both eyes. The audit collected data from 63 NHS eye clinics across the UK and has found the majority of patients are beginning treatment within a month of their initial referral.

During the webinar, Martin, who is the clinical lead for the project, will be explaining the results of the first audit, as well as any recommendations for patients with wet AMD.

To find out more about the result of the audit and what it could mean for you, register for the My Macular and Me webinar on Tuesday 21 February at 7pm.

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.

Our second My Macular and Me webinar of the month will welcome Professor Tunde Peto from Queen’s University Belfast. Professor Peto specialises in retinal diseases, with an emphasis on diabetic retinopathy. She will discuss the latest developments in research which could benefit patients living with sight loss caused by diabetes. This webinar is being held at 6:30pm on Thursday 23 February.
