AMD Appeal

Will you help us to map out macular research?

We’re leading the expedition to explore age-related macular degeneration.

The macula may be tiny, at just 6mm, but this little patch is responsible for the vision that allows us to read, write, drive – even recognise the faces of our loved ones.

With age, the macula begins to change, and we’re closer than ever to understanding how and why.

Will you help us to resource the next phase of our exploration?

Leading the way

Research is a steady, methodical process, with each step we take potentially opening up new avenues of exploration.

Our incredible researchers are blazing new paths that range from understanding basic mechanisms to full genomic mapping.

We’ve compiled huge amounts of data that can inform future treatments for AMD, from extensive family histories to image banks that can be analysed by world-leading scientists – even Artificial Intelligence technology.
