An event aimed at raising awareness of the most common cause of sight loss in the UK is taking place in Filey next week.

The Filey Macular Support Group, in partnership with the Macular Society, will hold the event next Tuesday (19 September) between 10.30am at 3pm at the Filey Methodist Church on Union Street.

The event will offer information about macular disease and will also highlight the wide range of support available to people living in the local area with macular conditions.

In the UK, more than 200 people are diagnosed with macular disease every day, with more people being affected as our population ages.

Julie Swan, Macular Society regional manager, said: “Events like these are a great way to raise awareness of macular disease and highlight the work of the Filey Macular Support Group.

“It’s good to be able to learn from each other’s experiences and tips.”
