The San Francisco Retina Foundation was established in 2007 to advance the treatment of retinal disease. This foundation has its roots in an early charity dating back to 1974. We have three major areas of interest: research, advanced education for clinicians, and patient education.
By actively supporting clinical research, the Foundation encourages the development of new and more effective ways of treating retinal disease. We also sponsor research conferences, research by internationally recognized ophthalmologists, and ophthalmologists-in-training. The Foundation sponsors meetings for physicians where the results of this research are presented.
In 1987, we began an innovative series of booklets that explain various aspects of retinal disease with easy-to-read text and graphic illustrations. Acclaimed by both patients and physicians, these booklets help patients learn about their condition and enable them to make informed decisions about their treatment. The following patient education booklets are available:
For My Patient: Macular Degeneration
For My Patient: Diabetic Retinopathy
For My Patient: Retinal Detachment and Vitreous Surgery
