Macular Society Virtual Clinics - an opportunity to hear from the experts

The Macular Society runs two 'Virtual Clinics' each month, giving people affected by the condition and those working with them the chance to find out more about macular conditions from experts.

On the third Tuesday of the month, the theme is topics for patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The next session is on 21st November and the subject is 'What role does our immune system play in the development of AMD?.'

On the last Thursday of every month, the Working Age session focuses more specifically on different macular conditions and issues affecting anyone of working age. The next session is on 30th November, and the subject is 'What causes photopsia and photophobia in patients with Stargardt and what impact does it have on their lives?'.
