Mission

The Eye on the Future Forum (EFF) is a platform to exchange knowledge and engage in dialogue on innovative clinical development approaches for genetic ophthalmic diseases, with a strong focus on inherited retinal diseases (IRD). We aim to learn what can be improved in the clinical stages of IRD drug development in order to make the patient and site experience better.

EFF brings together key leaders from around the world in addition to patients and advocacy groups to share their insights in the IRD field. We aim to understand each unique perspective so we can collaborate together to change the future of IRD treatment.
