What is Aniridia?

Aniridia is a very rare disease and every family affected is often alone to face the diagnosis. Even nationally, there’s often only a small group of individuals. Get to know aniridia.

Aniridia Europe, the federation of European aniridia associations and representatives, has been founded to change this situation. Read our mission objectives.

As of March 2019, the federation includes 12 national associations, as well as support groups and contact persons in 20 other European countries.
