Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON) is a maternally
inherited genetic disorder (of the Mitochondrial DNA) which
can cause blindness in males.
I am affected, and am connected with the lHON Trust, a
small UK charity which aims to provide mutual support and
information to affected people and their families.
I would like to contact affected people, their families/friends
or physicians/researchers interested in this or related
