Update on ACT trial

ACT recently announced treatment of a Stargardt's patient with 'better vision', as compared to the previous patients treated. It is very exciting following the trial progress and I can not wait to see the results.

The second patient treated had visual acuity of 20/100 (6/30) which is exciting as the trial is not only looking at the end vision stages but also the earlier stages, which is probably what I would be.

Here's ACT's press release:

Looking forward to the results!

Fighting Youth Blindness Charity Dinner

I'm very excited to share that Retina Australia is holding a Fighting Youth Blindness Charity Dinner!

It will be held Saturday 20th July at Castle Hill RSL in Sydney.

We are aiming to raise money to fund research for retinal diseases including Stargardt's Disease and Retinitis Pigmentosa, for support for those suffering from the diseases and also to raise awareness of the conditions.

It's going to be a great night out supporting a cause that is still quite unknown amongst the community.
