The Macular Society
“I just remember going home and breaking down. I cried so much I literally couldn’t breathe. I went into shock. I was terrified and felt sick constantly. I sometimes wonder when I think back how I got through those few days.”
This is how Katie described the impact of being diagnosed with macular disease. It is devastating to be told you will lose your sight and, every year, the number of people losing their sight to macular disease rises – and, as their sight fades, too many of them are overcome by frustration, grief, fear and isolation.
The Macular Society’s vision is to end macular disease, once and for all. It is one of the few sight loss charities that actively funds and supports research into macular disease as well as providing the very best information and support to the people affected today. Find out more at:
