Supporting children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes

Welcome to MACS

We are MACS – the UK’s national charity for children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes. We support families of children born with Microphthalmia (small eyes), Anophthalmia (no eyes) and/or Coloboma (cleft of the eye). Our services are accessed by around 500 families around the UK and some who are further afield.
