Virtual Clinics

Every month we host two Virtual Clinics – a series of webinars bringing 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 Virtual Clinics takes place on the third Tuesday of every month at 7pm, with a focus on topics for patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

On Tuesday 20 July we will be joined by our counselling service coordinator Suzanne Roberts to talk about macular disease and wellbeing.

Working age focus

The other Virtual Clinic, which takes place on the last Thursday of every month, focuses more specifically on different macular conditions and issues affecting anyone of working age.

On Thursday 24 June, we will be joined by Alastair Denniston from University Hospitals Birmingham who will discuss punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC).
