Reports from Retina Australia funded research

As an Australian volunteer-led charity, Retina Australia funds world-leading research into treatments and cures for blindness caused by inherited retinal disease.  

Thanks to our wonderful donors we have invested over $5 million in more than 40 research projects since 1983.
