Discovering New Technology for Children and Adults with Severe Retinal Blinding Diseases

futuristic eye

Tasha Chemel, a recent graduate from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, who has LCA, is the recent recipient of an Educational Entrepreneurship Fellowship from Harvard. She is seeking information about people with severe early onset retinal disease and the treatments available to them. This information will inform the design of a new technology that has the potential to help people with these diseases access their residual vision.

If you have no useable vision and have an early onset retinal disease, or are the parent of a child with one of these diseases, or a medical practitioner who works with them, you are eligible to complete a survey. Each person who completes a survey will be awarded a $15 gift Certificate.
