What Are Inherited Retinal Diseases?

Inherited retinal diseases (IRDs) are a group of genetic disorders that affect the retina's ability to function properly, leading to progressive vision loss and, in some cases, blindness. Common IRDs include retinitis pigmentosa, Leber congenital amaurosis, and Stargardt disease.

Purpose of this toolkit

This toolkit aims to provide information about IRDs to inform and educate people with IRDs, their carers, and the medical and research community with the goal of empowering all stakeholders to advance towards cures.

Information about clinical trials that are currently being conducted worldwide can be found on www.ClinicalTrials.gov and can be searched by condition and trial location.
