Who we are and what we do

We are a community of supporters, researchers, patients, healthcare professionals, and fundraisers, working together towards our shared goal: to bring forward the day when sight loss and blindness are a thing of the past.

We fund pioneering research into the causes of eye disease, in order to develop better prevention methods and more effective treatments for children and adults.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have been able to invest nearly £18 million in research projects that are bringing scientists ever closer to answering some of the most fundamental questions about eye health and eye disease.

Together, we can beat sight loss faster.

By supporting Sight Research UK, you can help to eradicate sight loss and blindness for good. For more than 35 years, that is what we have been working towards. 

With your help, we can make it a reality sooner. 

Please give what you can today. 

Thank you.

Stop the clock on sight loss

Every 6 minutes someone in the UK receives the devastating news that they are going blind. That’s 250 people a day. 

Your gift can help to find new sight-saving solutions. 

If you can, please donate today. Thank you.
