Help us beat AMD
Vision Express are proud partners of the Macular Society, the foremost charitable trust providing support to those who suffer from macular degeneration.
Age related macular degeneration is the most common form of sight loss in the UK, and is increasingly common in those over the age of 60. AMD currently affects more than 600,000 people in the UK and another 200 are diagnosed every day.
Macular conditions all affect the central part of the retina and cause loss of central vision. Macular disease only affects the macula and is the most common cause of sight loss in industrialised countries.
Vision Express teams up with the Macular Society to raise awareness about macular degeneration. This includes supporting Macular week in June as well as holding numerous fundraising events in store. We also have long standing partnerships with Macular ambassadors, and look to promote awareness through social media as well as regional and national press.
