Support us

Fundraising events, donations, regular gifts, legacies and donations in lieu of flowers at funerals of loved ones help us to support our critical research studies.


We are incredibly grateful to every donor who has contributed to Gift of Sight. We very much appreciate our loyal supporters without whom we would find it difficult to continue our vital research.


Please view Professor Lotery's plea for your support.


Donating to our Appeal is easy.
