The Gift of Sight Appeal was established with the aim of funding world-class research into the prevention and treatment of blindness.
Generous philanthropic gifts, including Legacies and Direct Debits, have helped us increase the number of staff employed in our vision science research group. This enables us to train the next generation of academic ophthalmologists and visual scientists and to provide them with the equipment they need to undertake their vital sight saving projects.
