We support children and adults who have one of, or sometimes a combination of, three eye conditions: Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma.
Some people with a MACS condition are blind, others have a degree of light perception, and some may be blind in one eye with some, or even good, sight in the other eye. The conditions develop during pregnancy and are often associated with other congenital (present at birth) disorders such as endocrine or heart problems. Some people with a MACS condition also have learning and developmental difficulties and behavioural problems.
Around 80-90 children are born with a MACS condition in the UK every year.
