Together, we can beat sight loss forever.

Today 2 million people in the UK are living with sight loss and blindness. Every day 250 more people are told that they are losing their sight. That’s one person every six minutes.

With your help, we can support more research to find new prevention and treatment methods for eye diseases.  


About eye diseases

  • Cataracts

  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is the most common cause of sight loss amongst those of working age. Pressure is raised in the eye which damages the optic nerve and increasingly causes sight loss. New treatments, including improved eye drops and surgical techniques to reduce this pressure in the eye are being researched. Read more
