Narrative

MISSION: The urgent mission of the Foundation Fighting Blindness is to drive the research that will provide preventions, treatments, and cures for people affected by retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration, Usher syndrome and the entire spectrum of retinal degenerative diseases.

SERVICES: For a $50.00 annual donation, FFB offers information and referral services for affected individuals and their families as well as for doctors and eye care professionals.  The Foundation also provides comprehensive information kits on retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration, and usher syndrome.  Our newsletter, InFocus, and our e-newsletter, InFocus online, present articles on coping, research updates, and Foundation news.  Both newsletters are published 3 times per year.  The Foundation’s national conference, Visions, is usually held every year.
