The partnership leading the way

The research carried out by Moorfields Eye Hospital and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology is an excellent example of how our partnership works to combat eye diseases. The knowledge gained from research is used to develop new treatments – bringing science and medicine together.

We’re turning new knowledge into treatments

Research into stem cell therapy, cellular and structural changes, and chronic eye disease will help find effective new treatments for conditions including glaucoma, age related macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa.

Your support is absolutely vital

The generosity of our supporters has made this research  possible. But there is more work to do to develop the research into clinical treatments which can benefit patients. We need your regular support so that these groundbreaking projects can save the sight of thousands of people worldwide.
