Who are The Macular Society?
Running from the 27th June to the 3rd of July, this year’s Macular Week organised by The Macular Society aims to raise awareness of an eye condition relating to the macula – an important but very small area for seeing at the back of the eye.This condition known as macular degeneration affects 600,000 people in the UK, many of whom rely on The Macular Society for support and advice through their large print, audio or online articles and newsletters, just email email@example.com or ring their telephone helpline (0300 3030 111). They also offer confidential telephone counselling sessions and nationwide support groups.
The votes were cast by health stores, nutritionists, pharmacies and independent practitioners and we would like to sincerely thank everyone for voting. Our key message remains that Viteyes 2 is based exactly on valid clinical trial research carried out over eight years that showed that it can slow the progression of eye disease.
This, combined with a strong history of prescribing in certain areas by ophthalmologists, makes it the supplement of choice for age related eye conditions.
This week, we have headed up the motorway to the ICC, Birmingham for the The Royal College of Ophthalmologists Annual Congress 2014. Every year, we hire a stand and take Viteyes brochures, samples and pens to give out to the delegates as we tell them about Viteyes – our nutritional supplement for eye health.
We emphasise the strong research base behind Viteyes – as this is of high importance to prescribers such as ophthalmologists and GP’s. Evidence based prescribing ensures that patients receive the treatments that give the best results.
Gift of Sight is the charity set up to raise funds for the pioneering eye research at Southampton Eye Unit lead by Professor Andrew Lotery. He specialises in macular degeneration and his team are at the forefront of new technologies to help develop new treatments in the future. Other areas of research are glaucoma, inherited retinal diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa and childhood conditions such as nystagmus.
During December Winchester holds a Christmas market and the town centre looks truly magical . A fundraising carol concert organised by Gift of Sight in Winchester College Chapel is dimly lit and we sponsor the purchase of pen torches with our logo on for everyone to use to read the hymn sheets. This gives an insight into how debilitating macular degeneration can be to those of us with full vision. This year’s concert on the 16th December is sold out already.
