The Thunder microscope will focus our research and speed up the next big breakthrough in eye health.
Over two million people in the UK live with sight loss. By 2050, that number is expected to increase to four million. We can’t let that happen.
The more we can understand about the conditions that cause sight loss, the better we can treat them. And to understand them, we need a Thunder microscope.
The Thunder microscope is an incredibly powerful piece of equipment that will help our researchers see the eye in more focus than ever before. It will support their studies into conditions like glaucoma, uveitis, and age-related macular degeneration – by helping them take high-definition images of the complex cell structures in eye tissue.
By helping to fund this vital piece of equipment, you’ll bring our top researchers a step closer to new treatments for sight loss. Please donate today.
Annie lives with birdshot uveitis, a rare autoimmune disease that can cause sight loss. There is no one treatment that suits everyone, and the cause is still unknown. That’s why our researchers are studying the condition to urgently find new treatments.
With your support, we’ll focus on saving the sight of more people like Annie.
