I came across this info in Wikipedia,  while searching for something connected with this posting, viz. 
Foundation Fighting Blindness
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foundation_Fighting_Blindness
The mission of this Foundation is to fund research that will lead to preventions, treatments, and cures for retinal degenerative diseases including: retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration, Usher syndrome, Stargardt disease, and related conditions. These diseases, which affect more than 10 million Americans and millions more throughout the world, often lead to severe vision loss or complete blindness.
