I took out a subscription to the Macular Society after a 6 months free trial. I have been a member for over 3 years. You receive a magazines in large print and it’s the most comprehensive and informative magazine on AMD. Interesting personal stories, It keeps you informed of all the latest trials & results. Tips on how to cope. A must for anyone who have just been diagnosed with AMD and other eye diseases, you can also ring them for help with any concerns you may have. Also they have volunteers to chat to you if your not coping and just want a chat.

Hi Koalajane, I have read articles about macular oedema in Rotherham magazine. The subscription for 12 months is £22. You do get a free period to try the MS. Also they have seminars that you can join and participate in on Zoom. There is one in Sept. I’m away from home at the moment, so Ican look to see if that includes your complaint when I get back on Monday. If you Google the MS there may be info on there. Failing that give them a ring.

Not Rotherham, predicted text on, it should read Macular.

Thank you

Did this many years ago & have never regretted the information & help. If not for being able to read everyones problems & realising I am not alone I would not have coped so well with AMD. Do not post often but it helps reading about other peoples ways to cope!

I couldn’t agree more. The best charity for Macular disease. I went to their ‘live’ annual conference in London pre pandemic and it was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the exhibition of vision aids but I also enjoy watching from home now. Also the monthly seminars. There are also local groups you can join.
