We are fortunate to enjoy the support of many visionary individuals, trusts and foundations, and organisations who are working with us to shape the future of eye care in a transformational way.

We truly appreciate the generous support of individual philanthropists and grant making organisations who’ve given gifts to support innovative research, education and care to improve people’s sight. 

Your generosity has enabled us to create opportunities for Moorfields Eye Hospital and its research partner, the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, to drive breakthroughs in research, education and care.

Recent projects

Thanks to philanthropic gifts, over the last few years alone we have supported:

Tomorrow’s experts

  • We support researchers at different stages in their careers through our PhD Studentships, Springboard Awards and Career Development Awards, as they make discoveries and improve outcomes for patients in the UK and around the world.

State-of-the-art equipment

  • We’ve purchased cutting-edge equipment including the Adaptive Optics Scanning Light Ophthalmoscopy machine, a bespoke piece of imaging technology.

An Eye Clinic Liaison Officer

  • We enabled Moorfields to hire a new member of staff who meets with patients across the trust to offer emotional support along with practical information and advice, helping them deal with potentially devastating news about their sight

The London Project to Cure Blindness

  • We supported a world-leading research for a new stem cell therapy for people with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Looking to the future

As we look ahead, we have an unmissable opportunity to create a state-of-the-art integrated treatment, research and education centre.
