Bright Focus Foundation is a nonprofit organization supporting research and providing public education to help eradicate brain and eye diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, macular degeneration, and glaucoma. We are working to save mind and sight.
BrightFocus is at the forefront of brain and eye health, advancing early-stage, investigator-initiated research around the world. We also provide free educational materials to people affected by or interested in these diseases, empowering them to take action for themselves and others. They can take advantage of news and research results offered through websites, publications, social media, videos, podcasts, and TV and radio public service announcements.
Founded in 1973 and known until February 1, 2013 as the American Health Assistance Foundation, our new name reflects our vision of a world where everyone experiences life fully and with clarity.
