The Elizabeth Thomas seminar is supported annually by the Macular Disease Society (MDS), and the MDS is this year celebrating 25 years of supporting people affected by the most common cause of sight loss in the UK.

In 1987 the Society was founded by Elizabeth Thomas after she was diagnosed with macular disease and recognised the need for more support, information, and research into finding a cure.

Today the Society has nearly 30,000 members and supporters and nearly 250 local support groups across the UK. In the last decade it has donated £1.5million to research into macular disease.

The MDS aims to build the confidence and independence of those with central vision impairment and is the only UK charity dedicated to helping people with macular disease.
