Objectives

MACS is the UK's national charity for children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes.  The organisation was formed in 1994, after a group of parents was brought to gather by a journalist investigating the causes of etc conditions.  These parents of MACS children had little or no support, and most had never met another family whose child was affected.  90 new babies with these conditions are born every year, and MACS provides and increasing range of services to support their physical. social and emotional needs.
