Information and support

Are you affected by inherited sight loss? We are here to help.

Retina UK* is a national charity. We offer information and support to people affected by inherited sight loss to enable them to lead better lives today and fund medical research to accelerate the search for treatments for the future.

We are here for you. You could be:

  • Recently diagnosed
  • Living with inherited sight loss for a while
  • Someone with a family history of the condition
  • A family member or friend of someone affected
  • A professional providing support.

*Retina UK was previously known as RP Fighting Blindness and the British Retinitis Pigmentosa Society (BRPS).
