Get involved in Macular Week 2024

The Macular Society is encouraging anyone affected by macular conditions, and professionals working with them to get involved in Macular Week 2024, which will run from Monday 24th June to Sunday 30th June.

Did you know macular disease is the biggest cause of sight loss in the UK? It is a devastating condition and those affected are often unable to watch TV, read or recognise the faces of their friends and family. Every year, Macular Week is an opportunity to show the impact of macular disease, and is a chance to tell the rest of the world about life with the biggest cause of sight loss, raise awareness of the importance of good eye health and highlight why funding research to find a cure is vital.

There are many different ways you can get involved and raise funds to Beat Macular Disease. Follow the link here or join the conversation on social media platforms using the hashtag #MacularWeek.
