We received grant support from the Fight for Sight organization to study an inherited form of inherited retinal detachment. 
In this family, children develop severe retinal detachments. Our genetic analysis suggests that a novel gene variant may be the cause, and efforts to identify the variant are underway. 
Our hope is that this research will help other people with more common, non-inherited forms of retinal detachment.
