Current Clinical Trials

As a service to our Family Network Members and the broader public, we provide updates on research regarding genetic vision disorders. We thought you’d like to know that researchers are currently recruiting participants for three clinical trials on potential treatments for ocular albinism and oculocutaneous albinism. All pertinent information regarding each trial is available on, a service of the National Institutes of Health. We’ve posted direct links to the trials below.
Clinical trials such as these, along with basic research, are the only way to find cures and treatments for hereditary vision disorders and blindness. Funding such research is at the heart of Vision of Children’s mission.
