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.
