MACS is the UK's leading charity supporting families with children born with Microphthalmia (small underdeveloped eyes), Anophthlamia (no eyes) or Coloboma (cleft of the eye). The birth of a child born with one, or sometimes a combination of all three, of these conditions can be devastating and isolating. For most families, there will have been no prior indication of any problems. The level to which individual children are affected can vary enormously; from a child having no sight or poor vision in just one eye to a complete absence of eyes. Many children also have to undergo the trauma of repeated procedures to expand their eye sockets and allow their skulls to grow at a normal rate. As eye and brain development are linked, some children also suffer from learning difficulties and behavioural problems. MACS acts as a vital lifeline, enabling parents and children to connect with a network of families who are also affected and so understand their experience. MACS also provides families with access to a range of essential resources, and gives these blind and visually impaired children opportunities to participate in activities which encourage them to live their lives to the fullest.
