Supporting children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes

At MACS we think it is important to recognise when people do well. Being blind or visually impaired doesn't mean that you can't achieve positive things in life and we like to share our members' successes, however large or small.

Over the last few months we have been receiving nominations for the MACS Member Achievement Awards 2017 and the nominations are now closed. We have received some incredibly inspiring stories about young MACS members with one of the three conditions, Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia or Coloboma, and we will be announcing our winners at the MACS Family Weekend (April 28th-May 1st 2017) or by post if you are not attending the event. 

In 2016, Aiden Pryor (pictured) was one of the children and young people whose achievements were acknowledged with an award.

Good luck!
