Advice and Information service

Free, confidential support

Being diagnosed with macular disease can leave you and your family feeling isolated and uncertain about the future.

However, there is no need to face macular disease alone; our specialist Advice and Information service team provides free information, guidance and advice to anyone affected by central vision loss, whether it’s you, a friend or a family member.

Our Advice and Information staff are friendly and knowledgeable professionals who can answer questions and provide information and advice about any aspect of living with macular disease. However, they are not medically qualified and cannot give medical advice.
