Macular Group and RP Group

Macular Sight Trial

The rersearch study SIGHT being carried out at Sunderland Eye Infirmary since September 2018 came to an end in May. This was aimed at patients who had Dry Macular, but no other eye condition. We were able to put forward a number of willing participants. We are waiting for feedback on this study.

Sunderland Eye Infiremary have started recruiting for another study called SCOPE. They are looking for patients with Geographic Atrophy (Advanced Dry AMD) in one or both eyes, with a vision of 40 LogMar letters or above and that have not taken part in the previous SIGHT research study.
