The Rare Ocular Diseases Center of the AUU Luigi Vanvitelli University of Campania offers diagnostic, rehabilitative and therapeutic courses for patients suffering from hereditary eye diseases, such as hereditary chorion-retinal dystrophies, hereditary optic diseases, keratoconus and corneal dystrophies, both in isolation and syndromic.
Patients are taken care of by a dedicated multidisciplinary team that welcomes and guides them in the treatment process, including ophthalmologists, orthoptists and nurses specialized in diagnostic and rehabilitative techniques, counselors and guidance and mobility operators to complete the qualification/rehabilitation course, as well as paediatricians, audiologists, neurologists, nephrologists for the diagnosis and treatment of syndromic forms.
The new rooms of the Center, recently renovated, are made up of clinics completely dedicated to patients suffering from rare ocular diseases, distinguished by children and adults, equipped with all the modern technologies to support diagnosis and visual rehabilitation. To support the visual disability, moreover, an "intelligent" tactile path has been installed, which allows the partially sighted patient to move independently in the Center through the use of the electronic stick and voice messages on the mobile phone.
Recently, a "Telethon Advanced Ocular Therapy Unit" was created at the Center, born from the synergy between the Telethon Foundation, AOU Luigi Vanvitelli University of Campania and the Vanvitelliano University, unique in Italy and among the few in Europe, dedicated to experimentation of innovative therapeutic strategies for the treatment of rare ocular diseases. In this way, patients are offered the possibility of being enrolled in major clinical studies for hereditary eye diseases.
