Neurofibromatosis 1 Optic Glioma's - Understanding the mechanisms of Vision Loss for Visual Restoration Strategies


In this study we are seeking to learn how different eye tests and devices can help understand vision in patients with NF1, including how vision loss might show up on different eye imaging devices that measure the nerves or the blood vessels of the eye. The study aims to understand the mechanisms of vision loss caused by neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1)-associated optic pathway gliomas, or NF1-OPGs. Subjects eight years and older with NF1 are eligible to enroll.

Subjects may not benefit directly from participating in this study, but the knowledge gained will help doctors understand the potential benefit of using these tests and other procedures to improve their ability to identify the best tests to monitor visual function, and ultimately identify treatments to improve vision, in children and adults with NF1.
