Supporting the LCA and rare retinal disease community

We see a cure for blindness.

What is LSA?

What is Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA)?

LCA is a rare inherited retinal disease characterized by severe vision loss at birth. While some children are born with little or no vision, others may have significant vision loss in the first few years of life, stable vision for a period of time, and then eventually complete vision loss as the retina deteriorates into total blindness.

What We Do

Founded in 2014, Sofia Sees Hope is a nonprofit 501(c)3 patient advocacy organization dedicated to generating awareness, raising funds for research, and providing support, education and outreach to the LCA and rare inherited retinal disease community.

Thank You to These Organizations

We checked in with Creed at the end of his third grade year to see how life was treating him in the wake of his #LUXTURNA treatment for his #LCA-related vision loss. Hint: It’s treating him well.
