Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma Support
supporting children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes
This year, 90 families in the UK will be told their babies have no eyes, small eyes, or a cleft in the eye. Many of them will have additional needs or other health challenges. Some will be told there’s no hope that their child will ever see. They may feel hopeless and alone - but they are not alone and there is hope.
MACS is the UK's national charity for children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes. We help 1800 people across the UK, supporting them at each stage of their journey by providing peer support, financial aid and opportunities to take part in life-changing activity trips.
Finding MACS when our daughter was born was an absolute ray of light moment, to know that other parents were out there sharing their experiences and that we weren't alone- which we absolutely felt at that time- was completely up-lifting.
