Have you heard of Mac the macula?

He gives us sight so spectacular

Say Hello to Mac

As part of a campaign to increase awareness of macular disease, the Macular Society have created Mac to tell their story.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the biggest cause of sight loss in the UK, over 600,000 people have the condition. Many people with macular degeneration cannot read, drive or recognise faces.

Please click the link below to find out more about macular degeneration and to watch the video. The video is also available through the link with audio description.


The Macular Society meets every third Monday of each new month, here at Walsall Society for the Blind.

The next meeting is on Monday 21st August 11 – 1, please come along or if you know someone who has macular and would like more information and a chat please tell them all about the meeting.

Thank you
