Albinism and age-related macular degeneration

Female scientist in the lab

Do you have albinism and are you aged over 60? 

Consultant Ophthalmologist Jay Self, and members of the vision research team at Gift of Sight, are interested to develop their knowledge of albinism and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). 

To the team's knowledge, albinism and AMD have never been seen in the same patient, despite AMD affecting one third of patients over the age of 75. 

If you have albinism and AMD please contact Jay by email at J.E.Self@soton.ac.uk. Alternatively, if you know someone who meets this criteria please ask them to make contact with Jay.
