Retina NewZ, our quarterly newsletter for members, provides a mix of practical coping tips and suggestions, members’ stories, reports from our meetings, and articles on the latest developments in research and treatments.

Back copies are available on this page.

Download PDF copies of Retina NewZ here and its Retina Youth supplement here.

Members can receive their copies of the newsletter by email (in print or in digital MP3 format) or be sent either a CD or print version.

If you would like to receive our latest newsletter regularly, join us by contacting or download our membership form here. Our membership fees are $10 per year for unwaged/retired people, and $20 per year for waged.

More back copies of our newsletter (dated back to 2000) can be found in the archives.  These online newsletters are text-only MS Word documents, so have been stripped of much of their formatting and images.  This is to enable searches for old newsletters that contain articles on particular topics, using the website’s Search function.
