About Micro & Anophthalmic Children’s Society

The Micro and Anophthalmic Children’s Society (MACS) is a non-profit organization in the United Kingdom dedicated to providing information, assistance, and support to families of children with microphthalmia or anophthalmia. Microphthalmia is a developmental abnormality characterized by abnormal smallness of one or both eyes. Individuals with anophthalmia exhibit absence of rudimentary (vestigial) portions of the eyes. Established in 1993, MACS, which includes approximately 200 families, is dedicated to providing networking services; arranging yearly gatherings for affected families; raising awareness concerning the needs of visually impaired and blind children; providing a resource library containing videos, books, toys, and information materials; and acquiring computer technology for the production of large print and braille books for the benefit of affected children. MACS offer a variety of educational materials including brochures, pamphlets, and a regular newsletter.
