Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the most common cause of sight loss in the developed world

Unity of Effort

Action Against AMD was founded by four leading sight loss charities to join efforts in identifying new interventions to stop the progression of early AMD.

Blind Veterans UK, the Macular Society and Sight Scotland Veterans (formerly Scottish War Blinded) continue to operate as independent charities, and are active governing members of Action Against AMD.

Our Mission

Our mission is to find and enable convenient, affordable, and accessible solutions to stop AMD in its early stages before it causes sight loss.

A world where people do not lose their sight to AMD
