Medical information about aniridia, written for both patients and doctors, is now available on a new website by Moorfields Eye Hospital.
Gene.Vision contains in-depth, but easy to read, details about aniridia for patients and their families. It also lists current research and clinical trials in to treatments.
Alongside is scientific content aimed at clinicians and other professionals who are diagnosing patients or learning about the condition. It is also directed to general practitioners and other referrers to understand their patient’s condition and how to provide the best care plan, quickly and easily.
Gene.Vision was developed by Professor Mariya Moosajee and Dr Alex Yeong, supported by Dr Peter Thomas (Director of Digital Innovation) at Moorfields Eye Hospital in 2019/20. It went live on 1 December 2020.
The website was tested for accessibility and can be used by everyone, especially those with all levels of sight loss and using magnification or screen reader software. It adapts well to use on mobile devices too.
Aniridia Network contributed to the website’s content, together with other relevant charities. More information here.
