Healthcare provider:

The Reference Center for Rare Disorders in Ophthalmic Genetics (CARGO) was created in the National Rare Diseases Plan in November 2004. It welcomes children, adults, couples or families concerned or likely to be affected by an ophthalmological disease of genetic origin.

The objectives of the center are:

  • Provide the patient and his/her family with a coherent and comprehensive medical (ophthalmological and genetic in particular), orthoptic (rehabilitation, low vision), psychological and social care.
  • To ensure a relay with the attending physicians and correspondents, the medical and psycho-social networks of management of the low vision and the associations of patients.
  • Develop and participate in research programs dedicated to ophthalmological genetics at the local, national and international levels.
