On this year’s day for improving understanding of aniridia around the world, we want you to focus on possibilities:
- tell everyone what it is possible to do with a visual impairment
- come together to show there are similar people nearby
- fundraise and volunteer to enable us to hold a massive event next year
On social media on Friday 21 June, share a photo/video with an explanation that shows what can be done as a job, hobby, sport or education – while living with aniridia.
Tag your Twitter/Instagram/Facebook posts with: #CanDoWithAniridia and @AniridiaDay
On Facebook: join and post in the public Aniridia Day group.
Like, comment on and share what others post too.
Gathering with others living with aniridia is lots of fun. Take the initiative: tell us when and where Aniridia Network members should go to chat with you and we’ll advertise it to those nearby.
Ideally events take place on Aniridia Day but other dates are good too.

- London: Wetherspoons, Victoria Station at 6:00-8:30pm.
- Dublin: Wynne’s Hotel, Abby Street, Dublin between – 5:00-7:30pm
