Do you have contact with people who have an inherited retinal disease?

I’ve been involved in vision research, specifically in retinal degeneration research, for a couple of years now. This year I am completing my Honours (a year-long research project as part of my undergraduate degree) working on a project looking into the neovascular/wet form of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) with Clear Vision Research – a lab based at the Australian National University. AMD is a disease which affects around 1 in 7 Australians over the age of 50 with little treatment options, so while I don’t have much direct contact with individuals who have inherited retinal diseases, I’m passionate about work and research in this area.
