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.

Please join us for A Rare Opportunity to raise awareness of inherited retinal disease, treatments, and living life to the fullest. #LCA #IRD #RP #LUXTURNA

Moms like Ashlyn are why we do what we do. Making connections, alleviating feelings of isolation, bringing together those in the rare disease community. Thank you Ashlyn for sharing your story. #LCA #CEP290 #LCA10 #IRD

This is great news for the inherited retinal disease community, while not impacting Leber congenital amaurosis patients directly. @MeiraGTx @JanssenGlobal #IRD #GeneTherapy #LCA

Thank you to all our supporters, donors, sponsors, and friends. Because of you we are able to help 3 important research projects continue to move forward, and help families in our community access genetic testing.
