The Gift of Sight Appeal was established with the aim of funding world-class research into the prevention and treatment of blindness.
Your generous philanthropic gifts, including Legacies and Direct Debits, have helped us increase the number of staff employed in our vision science research group, enabling us to train the next generation of academic ophthalmologists and visual scientists. We know times are hard during the time of the coronavirus pandemic but any help you are able to give to help us continue our vital research will be gratefully received. Thank you.
The aims of the vision research group are as follows:
To perform world class research to create better treatments and thus prevent blindness
To achieve this by attracting sufficient funding to allow the research to proceed quickly
To train the next generation of academic ophthalmologists and visual scientists
To disseminate our research findings in leading research journals
- To work as a team to achieve these goals
