Huge progress has been made in ophthalmic research in the past 20 years. We have, for instance, developed and refined the surgical methods used to cure retinal diseases. We have identified better and more long-term treatments for macular diseases (AMD) and glaucoma, and we have improved examination methods used to detect visual disturbances.
Many questions still remain unanswered
Ophthalmic research still has many unanswered questions to address.
- Are there even more ways to reduce the number of cases of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)?
- How to protect the optic nerve from degeneration in glaucoma?
- It is possible to find stem cell and gene therapy treatments for eye diseases that currently lack treatment?
- In what way is vision in children and young people affected by screens?
- How can vision be improved in premature children?
Help to invest in a future with better vision
The only way to find answers to the above questions is through research. But medical research costs money and private support is crucial for top-class research.
There are a variety of ways to support our research. Donations, gifts and wills make a big difference to eye research.
Thank you for your support! Together we can make a difference.
