Aniridia Network UK

We are a support group and charity concerned with the rare genetic condition aniridia – which causes a lack of irises (the coloured ring) in the eyes and poor vision from birth.

For over 10 years Aniridia Network UK has been helping people with aniridia as well as their families, doctors and teachers to be hopeful, confident, supported and well informed about aniridia and related issues. For more details read about us.
