Welcome to the IFOND Website

The International Foundation for Optic Nerve Disease is dedicated to the promotion of research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of optic nerve disease, and to the dissemination of information about optic nerve disease.

The IFOND Web site is an information/support center for patients with optic nerve disease and their families, as well as clinicians, scientists and lay persons interested in optic nerve disease.

IFOND has a reference section of links to articles, abstracts other web sites, authorities and institutions. IFOND reprints previously published peer reviewed articles about optic nerve disease. The IFOND Dictionary is our glossary of terms relevant to optic nerve disease with hyperlinks to Wikipedia, PubMed and other references.

Projects

IFOND sponsors research in optic nerve disease. Our Projects section keeps you up to date in IFOND sponsored research. Check the News for other recent developments in knowledge about optic nerve disease.

Research in optic nerve disease is taking place in laboratories around the world. If you would like to contribute to this effort by volunteering or donating, please contact IFOND. Your help may be of great assistance to the current search for therapies. Thank you for your interest!

If you or anyone you know has visual loss that is not improved by glasses, or a diagnosis of Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON), please be sure to read about the new understanding of optic nerve disease. The understanding and even the definition of optic nerve disease began to change in the 1980's with a series of neuroscientific discoveries that helped explain the process by which nerve cells die, including those in the optic nerve.
