2019- Moorfields Eye Charity

In 2019 we supported Moorfields Eye Charity and raised over £10,000. We will be supporting them again for our 2020 courses.

 

About Moorfields Eye Charity

At Moorfields Eye Charity, we believe that we can help bring new treatments to patients with eye diseases faster than ever before. By raising funds for the crucial research, education and patient care at Moorfields Eye Hospital and its academic partner, the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, we are able to help ensure that they remain at the forefront of ophthalmic care and research.

Together, Moorfields Eye Hospital and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology are the most productive academic partnership in ophthalmology. This means that they produce more research than any other eye hospital in the world.

Through support from our donors, we are able to:

  • Help Moorfields Eye Hospital provide the best possible care for its patients
  • Invest in state-of-the-art equipment
  • Educate the researchers and clinicians of tomorrow
  • Fund research to find better and more effective treatments for blinding diseases
