Adamtsl4-related eye disorders
Are there good support groups for ADAMTSL4-related eye disorders?
As of May 2019, there are no support groups specifically for people with ADAMTSL4-related eye conditions. There are support groups for people who are affected by low vision in general. In addition, the Pediatric Glaucoma and Cataract Family Association may have useful resources if you have a child with an ADAMTSL4-related eye condition. Your eye doctor may be able to put you in touch with low vision support groups in your area.

You can also look for general support groups for people who are affected with low vision. These support groups vary from state to state, but you eye doctor may be aware of some in your area. The Glaucoma Research Foundation also offers information and support for individuals experiencing glaucoma. Also, Family Connect is a support group for families affected by vision impairment.
