The mission of the Retina Foundation of the Southwest is to prevent vision loss and restore sight through innovative research and treatment for pediatric eye conditions, inherited eye diseases, and age-related macular degeneration.

— LATEST NEWS & EVENTS —

Recently, the Retina Foundation of the Southwest hosted a launch party for its new giving society, the Rods & Cones Foresight Circle at the home of Nancy and Steve Rogers. Guests at the launch party enjoyed demonstrations and tastings of Texas-raised Wagyu Beef courtesy of Rosewood Ranches, a family-owned business that has been raising cattle in Texas for over 100 years. Rosewood’s award-winning Chef Michael Scott was joined by Chef Isaac Walker of The Bartonville Store, Chef Christian Dortch of Georgie by Curtis Stone, and Chef Luke Rogers, Director of Culinary, Madewell Hospitality, Public Taco.

Scientifically, rods and cones are the receptors in the retina responsible for sight. They convert light into electrical signals which are decoded by the vision processing center of the brain. Karl Csaky, MD, PhD, the Foundation’s chief executive and medical officer, invited guests at the launch to be the rods and cones for the Retina Foundation to help convert the Foundation’s mission and vision into accelerated solutions for diseases that rob eyesight.

“Right now, the Retina Foundation is positioned to make significant impacts on population health and preserving vision for generations of families,” said Dr. Csaky. “Your financial support and leadership will allow us to move more quickly and effectively towards a future of saved and preserved vision – a clearer future for your children and grandchildren as well as greater independence for aging family members.”

The Retina Foundation’s Rods & Cones Foresight Circle includes three levels:

  • Membership for 2 adults under 35 – $250
  • Membership for 2 adults 35 and older – $500
  • Family membership for up to 4 adults – $750
