Working to Save, Restore, and Protect Your Vision
The Foundation Fighting Blindness is urgently driving the research to put an end to the entire spectrum of vision-robbing retinal degenerative diseases.
Since 1971, the Foundation Fighting Blindness has raised nearly $550 million in support of its mission to find preventions, treatments and cures for blinding conditions such as retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration, Stargardt disease and Usher syndrome. Collectively, these diseases affect more than 10 million people in the United States, and millions more worldwide.
The Foundation funds innovative research in a number of scientific areas including genetics, gene therapy, stem cell-based therapies, neuroprotection, pharmaceuticals and nutrition at prominent institutions around the world. Thanks to the Foundation’s tireless efforts, people with retinal degenerative diseases have hope for a future without blindness.
