Retinal diseases are diagnosed in Russia every day. Anyone can be a patient: from newborns with retinopathy of prematurity to the elderly with age-related macular degeneration. Loss of vision function and reduced quality of life is a situation faced by thousands of people.
Preventing irreversible changes and helping patients with high-quality and timely treatment is a large and urgent task, for which the Foundation for Research and Treatment of Retinal Diseases was established in March 2017.
To solve the main task, the activities of the foundation are distributed in two directions:
· preservation of vision: the Foundation assists in educating the population about the possible risks of retinal diseases;
· education of doctors: the Foundation creates a platform for the exchange of professional opinions between skilled experts and ophthalmologists with little experience, holds scientific conferences; promotes the education of young vitreoretinal surgeons
The Foundation is a non-profit organization, the activities of which are carried out mainly at the expense of funds donated by individuals and entities.
At the same time, the Foundation does not collect funds for the treatment of specific people, since the treatment of retinal diseases is, as a rule, urgent, and any delay may worsen the vision prognosis.
Our goal is to create an open space that brings together helping people, medical education and basic science.
I am glad to be involved in the creation of this story.

Glasses cannot solve the problem with the development of retinal dystrophy. Imagine that the glasses are a camera lens and the retina is a photosensitive film. And this film is damaged.

The “wet” form of age-related macular degeneration is characterized by the growth of pathological blood vessels under the central zone of the retina (or macula). Due to their fragility, blood and fluid often penetrate, lifting the macula from its normal position. All this becomes the cause of pathological changes in the center of the retina. […]
Currently, there are two forms of macular degeneration: “dry” (non-exudative) and “wet” (exudative, neovascular). The first type of disease is detected in 9 out of 10 cases of AMD. Approximately 10–20% of patients with non-exudative macular degeneration subsequently develop a “wet” form of AMD. The development of a “dry” form of AMD is caused by […]
With age-related macular degeneration, there is no indication for a decrease in the usual visual load; you can continue reading, writing, watching TV as before.
