Inherited retinal diseases are the primary cause of youth blindness in Australia, and are the primary cause of blindness in the working age population.

It is estimated that about 15,000 people in Australia have an inherited retinal disease, resulting in most cases in legal blindness.

Retina Australia (Vic) Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people affected by retinal diseases, their families and their friends. Our focus is on promoting equality and support for people with inherited retinal diseases, and supporting research to find a treatment or cure.

Currently our annual Solstice for Sight Appeal is underway, held on the shortest day and longest night of the year. See our News and Events page for more details, or use the Give Now link below to donate.
