Retina Australia NSW supports Retinitis Pigmentosa, Macular Degeneration and like conditions.

Retinitis Pigmentosa is the leading cause of youth blindness. One in 3,000 babies are born with Retinitis Pigmentosa which is second only to Diabetes as the cause of blindness in the working age population.  One in 80 people carry the gene which causes Retinitis Pigmentosa.

Macular Degeneration is usually 'age related' but it can occur in the young where it is called Stargardt Disease. Usher Syndrome is a combination of deafness from birth (moderate to severe) with the person later presenting with Retinitis Pigmentosa.

Retina Australia NSW is a member of Retina Australia which is a voluntary organisation of State and Territory groups concerned with retinal degenerative diseases.

We provide funds for scientific research, information and peer support to people and families affected by retinal degenerative diseases.
