This includes many here in our area, friends and relations and maybe ourselves one day.
Every day, over 200 people are diagnosed with macular disease. It’s the biggest cause of sight loss in the UK.
Macular disease is cruel and isolating. It steals your sight, your independence, and your ability to do the things you love. Our short film, 5 years through the eyes of a mum, illustrates this by showing the impact of macular disease on a mother and her son, as he grows up.
Macular disease can affect people of any age — even children — but not enough is known about why, and there is still no cure. We produced this film to let people know that, while there is no cure for macular disease, there are things you can do to look after your eyes. An eye test can spot the early signs of macular disease and help you retain your precious sight.
There is only one way to Beat Macular Disease for good. We must fund much more research now, until we find a cure, or find treatments that stop it in its tracks.
