Providing Support and Funding Research

Welcome to The Vision For Tomorrow Foundation!

The Vision For Tomorrow Foundation provides support and information on albinism and aniridia, two conditions causing low vision from birth.  We invite you to explore our website to learn more about albinism and aniridia.  We welcome you to meet some of our members and families profiled throughout the website who are leading fulfilling lives.  If you need support in your journey through albinism or aniridia, we encourage you to reach out to us by either contacting us via Facebook, email, or going to the ‘Contact Us’ section of the website for other options.  We are here to support you!

The Vision For Tomorrow Foundation also funds research into treatments and cures for ocular complications common in people living with albinism and aniridia.  Funding research is at the heart of our foundation. Research makes it possible to better understand and more effectively treat ocular complications common in albinism and aniridia. It allows us to envision a world where their vision problems may be cured — or even prevented. We are proud to say that over 90% of the funds raised by Vision For Tomorrow are directly invested in research projects!  We understand that by investing in research today, we will build a brighter future.
