ABOUTOur Mission

Our mission at The Macula Foundation is simple — to prevent and restore vision loss by raising awareness about the macula and furthering knowledge in the field with innovative research.

Because of the impact on vision, our principal goals have been the study of age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other retinal, macular diseases such as central serous chorioretinopathy, pseudoxanthoma elasticum, pathological high myopic, and macular degeneration.

Since its inception, the Foundation has raised and distributed over 50 million dollars for research and teaching in macular disease.

We are dedicated to training physicians in the macular disease field and facilitating the discovery of new, groundbreaking forms of diagnosis and therapy.
