  1. PIC is different to Birdshot Chorioretinopathy and because of this, it can be treated differently. Have you visited the PIC Society website http://www.pic-world.net . Dave who runs this support group might know of people with PIC in South Africa. There is also a PIC facebook group. PIC tends to affect younger near sighted (mainly) women I believe and the white spots are more clearly punched out than in Birdshot. There are similarities – they don’t know why people get it, some people are affected worse than others and it is chronic. There is a need for better treatment. There is also a twitter feed PIC support UK https://twitter.com/PICsupportUK?original_referer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pic-world.net%2F&profile_id=1910964312&tw_i=485685455099527168&tw_p=embeddedtimeline&tw_w=425371106862563328.

    • If you are in South Africa and would like to get in touch with Wendy, please get in touch with BUS and we will pass your contact details on to Wendy, so that you are in touch with someone with Birdshot in the same country!
