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.
Please call us on 0300 3030 111. All calls are confidential.
Calls cost the same as standard rate calls to landline 01 or 02 numbers and will be included as part of any inclusive call minutes or discount schemes with your provider.
Alternatively, you can make a referral for our advice and information service online.
