Albinism researchers in Southampton (Jay Self and Helena Lee) would love to hear from anyone with any form of albinism who is over the age of 60. If you or anyone you know fits the bill, please read on …
Jay and Helena are seeking to understand two questions which have baffled researchers for some time and they need your help:
1. Why has Albinism and Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) never been seen in the same patient when AMD affects 1/3 of people over 75? Are people with Albinism protected from this condition?
2. Why does the retina lose function late in older animals with Albinism, but apparently not in humans?
If anyone with Albinism, who is over the age of 60, would like to help Jay and Helena find answers to these questions, please complete the form below. Thank you.
