Frequently Asked Questions
WhO are the Two Blind Brothers?
The brothers are Bryan Manning and Bradford Manning. They grew up in Virginia and currently live together in New York City. They are equally obsessed about the way clothing feels, and they are ruthlessly committed to finding cures for blindness. They both are diagnosed with Stargardt's disease, which is a form of macular degeneration. Read more here.
How much vision do the brothers have?
Stargardt's disease typically affects one's center vision but the peripheral vision is unaffected. The brothers' visual acuity is approximately 20/400. Their peripheral vision allows them to get around without visual assistance in most circumstances. Some of their biggest visual challenges include reading small text and recognizing faces.
Is Two Blind brothers A Company or Charity?
We are set up as an LLC, but we may change our corporate structure to a charitable one. Our lawyers tell us that there are advantages and disadvantages to both structures. In either case, we take no salary or profits for ourselves. We donate 100% of profits to charitable foundations, programs, and researchers focused on our mission.
Where do the profits go?
The profits go towards research programs that are developing therapies for eye disease. We select the beneficiaries through our own network and other trusted organizations. Bradford Manning is a director on the board of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, which is one organization that helps us and that we are supportive of. We retain the ability to fund the best projects with the most promise of supporting our mission to cure these diseases. Read more here.
