Norrie Disease Information Leaflet

The Norrie Disease Foundation has published an information leaflet which will be of interest to anyone affected by this very rare condition, and professionals in the sight loss sector.

Norrie disease is a genetic condition causing blindness/severe visual impairment from birth which mainly affects boys. Most affected individuals also suffer from progressive hearing loss often starting in early childhood. The leaflet describes the genetic changes which cause the condition, symptoms and the role of the various professionals involved in treatment. You can read it here.

The Norrie Disease Foundation is a UK-based charity which provides support to families and promotes research into the condition. For more information, visit their website.
