The University of Southampton Gift of Sight Appeal (Exempt Charity No. X19140) was established with the aim of funding world-class research into the prevention and treatment of blindness.
Your generous philanthropic gifts, including Legacies, Direct Debits, one-off gifts and memory donations help our scientists investigate the causes of blinding eye diseases. Conditions include age-related macular degeneration, nystagmus, albinism, RP, Sorsby, Stargardt and corneal conditions.

Grateful thanks to Russell Tribe, a patient who has 'wet' age-related macular degeneration for helping ur scientists put together a document to highlight the lack of funding into eye disease. Thanks to Prof Lotery for his interviews too!
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
