The Foundation Fighting Blindness is, of course, all about finding treatments and cures for retinal degenerative diseases. However, we are well aware that many of our constituents and their families are dealing with more than just vision loss. That’s because genetic defects causing retinal conditions can sometimes affect other parts of the body. The result is conditions often referred to as syndromes.
