    Vision Voice newsletter: Autumn 2024

    The Autumn 2024 edition of the Vision Voice newsletter is out now!

    The new Eye Connect service offering is the first macular disease patient support service aimed at enhancing health outcomes by providing education, resources, and emotional support, leading to better adherence to treatment plans, improved self-management, and increased overall well-being. If you have a macular disease diagnosis, please consider connecting with the My Eyes service. Like all our support services, My Eyes is free of charge and available to you no matter where you live. You can learn more at Eye Connect.

    A big thank you to the 2,000 people living with macular disease who participated in our second Social Impact survey. An amazing response.

    The surveys help us identify new ways we can support you, and also help inform our advocacy activities, and research priorities.

    Our second survey focussed on areas including mental health, barriers to persisting with anti-VEGF injections, concerns about falling, and areas of advocacy you would like MDFA to focus on. You can read about the key findings from the survey and how this data informs the work we do to support the macular disease community. Read more here.
