Augenärzte, Forscher, Genetiker und Betroffene mit ihren Familien sowie Angehörigen sind unsere Zielgruppe.
Durch das Teilen dieser Erfahrungen und Fortschritte rund um Aniridie erhoffen wir uns eine stärkere Gemeinschaft und Unterstützung für sowie untereinander.
Aniridie zu verstehen ist schwierig aufgrund der geringen Patientenzahl (1 aus 47.000), es ist aber hoch variabel, kompliziert und individuell in seinen Ausprägungen.
Die Europäische Aniridie Konferenz bringt Experten aus aller Welt zusammen, es ist der produktivste Weg, um neue Wege und Therapien zu entwickeln. Unsere Zusammenkunft hilft, Patienten und Betroffenen zu helfen, durch bessere Behandlungen und ein Miteinander.
Es wird 2 Tage voller Präsentationen und Netzwerken geben, bei denen Wissen untereinander geteilt wird. Betroffene werden Ihre Sicht teilen und direkt mit Ärzten, Forschern und Wissenschaftlern auftreten. Auch nicht Augen-spezifische Aspekte, wie Übergewicht, Diabetes, neurologische Defizite, etc. werden erörtert.
Das Netzwerken in virtuellen Räumen wird teils moderiert, teils offen für alle sein.

Wir hoffen, Sie nutzen die Chance und werden wie wir viel lernen und erfahren. Stellen Sie Ihre Fragen, sprechen Sie mit Betroffenen und Experten aus aller Welt, werden Sie selbst zum Experten!

Die Konferenz wird Forschung und klinische Praxis zusammenbringen, sowie die Einbeziehung der Betroffenen.

By sharing the insights of those developing treatments and living with aniridia, it’s goal is to upskill each other and strengthen our medical and patient communities. This will enable us together to prevent sight loss and deal with aniridia’s other effects.
Understanding aniridia is challenging, due to the scattered patient population (1 in 47,000), its highly variable impact and complications of linked conditions.
The European Aniridia Conference (EAC) innovatively addresses this by bringing together different kinds of the world’s top experts. It’s the most productive path to developing new disease management and therapies. It accelerates the development of better treatments and hugely improves patient care.
There will be 2 days of presentations and networking to share knowledge on how aniridia affects the different parts of the body. Each section will be introduced by a person with aniridia giving details of their experiences. Non-eye aspects of aniridia will be addressed, as patients are known to have problems with weight control, diabetes and possibly neurological/brain-related deficits too.In the virtual networking room alongside the presentations, delegates can discuss mutual interests and review the talks. Some conversations will be facilitated, others free flowing.
The last part of the conference will focus on adult patients and parents of children with aniridia. 2 more adults with aniridia will describe their life with low vision in depth. Aniridia Europe will discuss their future plans. Leaders of established national patient associations will advise those who aspire to build a patient group in their area.

„The EAC is highly valued because it brings together fundamental scientific research and clinical practice, while at the same time providing opportunity for friendly and open engagement with patients. The meeting will be a vibrant and informative event, especially as the critical mass of clinicians and scientists rising to meet the challenges of understanding the role of genetic mutation in aniridia all the way through to clinical trials of novel therapies is growing”

Julie DanielsProfessor of Regenerative Medicine & Cellular Therapy at UCL Institute of Ophthalmology


Likewise, a researcher declared: “What I like most about these events is sharing and talking with patients and families.”
At previous conferences patients enjoyed: “learning new things and meeting amazing professionals and others in similar situations.” 
Parents of children with aniridia valued:“the chances to meet others, making connections and touching base with professionals interested in aniridia.”We hope you will join us for what promises to be a superb learning opportunity. Don’t miss the chance to ask questions to live and speak to the best informed people around the world about aniridia – and become one of them yourself! Find out more and sign up for free at
