Story

Growing understanding of aniridia is challenging, due to the limited and distributed patient population, its highly variable impact on people and the complications of linked conditions.

This conference is the only European forum for discussing the medical aspects of aniridia. It accelerates the development of better treatments and hugely improves patient care.

"There are a number of exciting possibilities for the treatment of aniridia now arising from research. The conference will examine the possibilities and how the research in areas such as stem cell therapy and drugs might move from the lab to the clinic. - Consultant Ophthalmologist.

Every 2 years, in a different city, the event attracts over 70 of the best ophthalmologists, researchers, vision scientists and geneticists from around the globe. They give formal presentations about their pioneering surgery and experiments relating to aniridia. People with aniridia also attend to share their perspectives and disseminate the learning gained in their own countries. Together the professionals and patients form a winning community focused on finding effective treatments for all aspect of aniridia.

The conference is scheduled for 14-16 August 2020 in London.

But it will only be possible with donations from various sources. Make a difference to the lives of thousands of patients and relatives around the world. Gve a donation to help us solve the medical challenges of aniridia.together.
