Newly Published Research Paper Available
One of our researchers, Dr. Suzanne Roffler-Tarlov, recently published a paper in PLOS ONE, titled "L-Dopa and the Albino Riddle: Content of L-Dopa in the Developing Retina of Pigmented and Albino Mice." Dr. Suzanne Roffler-Tarlov, et al. studied the levels of L-Dopa in the developing retina and found that L-Dopa levels are low in the albino mouse retina. She determined that by feeding L-Dopa to pregnant albino mice, the levels can be restored in the fetal retinas. These findings further implicate L-Dopa as a factor in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) that could influence development, and demonstrate that administration of L-Dopa could be a means to rescue developmental abnormalities characteristic of albinos.

Your donations make a DIFFERENCE! Every donation to The Vision of Children Foundation, no matter the size, increases the opportunity for us to fulfill our Mission. With proper funding, we are able to direct and sponsor scientific research which will lead to the prevention and treatment of these conditions. Additionally, we're able to serve as an information source for the medical community, the public, and families affected by genetic vision disorders. The Vision of Children Foundation directly grants over 80% of funds raised toward its Mission.
