It is hard to imagine what life would be like without sight. For most people, their reduced vision is correctable with a pair of glasses. However, there are some who suffer from vision loss for which there is no effective treatment or cure.
The Retina Foundation of the Southwest is one of only two independent nonprofit eye research institutes in the country. For more than three decades we have been unwavering in our mission to prevent and restore vision loss through innovative research and treatment. The Retina Foundation is a leader in research to develop treatments for macular degeneration, pediatric eye disorders, and inherited eye disorders, including retinitis pigmentosa.
What sets the Retina Foundation apart is the service we provide our patients and their families at no cost. Each year, there are more than 2,000 infants, children, adults and seniors who visit the Retina Foundation for advanced visual evaluations free of charge.
More than 80 cents of every dollar goes directly to support research and testing. Your gift on North Texas Giving Day to the Retina Foundation will help to advance research that is saving sight!
