Fighting Blindness started in 1983 as a group of families affected by blindness getting together for support. We are now a global leader in the search for cures and treatments for genetically-inherited and age-related forms of blindness. In 1989, researchers in Trinity College Dublin, funded by Fighting Blindness, located the first known gene responsible for causing retinitis pigmentosa (RP).
Since then, over 100 other genes have been discovered, and the ongoing research in this area is extremely encouraging. These discoveries have also greatly contributed to the expansion of our knowledge of other conditions, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). We are happy to accept any donations of remaining balances on One4all Gift Cards, please just post or drop your One4all Gift Card into us.
Fighting Blindness is an Irish, patient-led organisation funding research into treatments and cures for blindness. We also provide a unique professional counselling service for people and families affected by sight loss. Our vision is to cure blindness, support those experiencing sight loss and empower patients.
