Join an online community of people with the same type of macular disease as you

Age-related Macular Degeneration is the largest type of macular disease in the UK today but, there are other types of the disease that effect people on a daily basis. These conditions are much rarer and it is unlikely that you will meet lots of other people living with the condition you may have.

The Macular Society have created a number of online condition specific groups to offer peer support and information. The groups meet online once a month.

What are the groups for?

Macular Society peer support groups are attended by thousands of people every month with macular disease. People join the group to:

  • Learn more about macular disease
  • Connect with others who have macular disease
  • Hear from leading clinicians and sight loss professionals
  • Reduce feelings of isolation
  • Exchange hints and tips about living with macular disease
