Aniridia Network

We are a charity that supports people with rare genetic condition aniridia in UK and Ireland. Aniridia causes a lack of irises (the coloured ring) in the eyes and poor vision from birth.

Since 2000 Aniridia Network 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. Learn more About us.

Join us to benefit from all our services and to stay in touch.
