About Stargardt’s

Stargardt’s disease is an inherited progressive disease that affects the retina.

The disease causes a blurring of vision, especially the ability to see fine details, for example difficulty reading a book and recognising faces.

It is most commonly diagnosed in children and young adults, but can also be diagnosed in middle age and less often in older people. It affects approximately one in 10,000 people and therefore is classed as a rare condition.

There is currently no treatment or cure for Stargardt’s disease.
