Aniridi Sverige (Aniridia Sweden) is a national non-governmental organisation for people interested in aniridia: those who have it plus their families, doctors, educators and other support providers. We work to make people hopeful, confident, supported and well-informed about aniridia.


Since 2006 we have been dedicated to:
  • improving knowledge about aniridia
  • building a supportive community of diagnose carriers, relatives and professionals
  • promoting research into the causes, effects, treatment and management of aniridia and related conditions.
