If you have a retinal ailment, or your family member has been diagnosed with one, you should consider joining us, as we work towards strengthening the patient alliance, and building a cohesive joint effort between patients and physician researchers to facilitate clinical trials, spur research and development and develop newer treatments for retinal disorders in India. Your participation will make us stronger, and in the process, you will gain benefit from the various activities of Retina India.
We also invite people with a social spirit, who have an inherent desire to do something good for others and make a difference in someone’s life, to volunteer and be a part of this movement. Young adults, as well as school and college students, can gain experience in working on a project for Retina India. Please fill the membership form or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
