How legacies make a difference

No matter how large or small, gifts in wills are a vital contribution to our work. They have enabled Fight for Sight to support research to reduce sight loss in adults and children that otherwise may not have gone ahead.

Unfortunately, each year there are a large number of excellent projects that cannot go ahead quite simply due to a lack of funds, so your gift will ensure we can fund more pioneering eye research to develop ways to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease. 

We are dedicated to making a difference to the lives of people with conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataract, diabetic retinopathy and inherited eye conditions by developing treatments to give people better sight today - and in the future. 

Gifts made in this wills have helped to enable a number of Fight for Sight’s achievements to date. 

These include: 

  • restoring sight by establishing the UK Corneal Transplant Service enabling over 52,000 corneal transplants to take place
  • identifying new genes responsible for keratoconus and Nance-Horan syndrome
  • bringing hope to children with inherited eye disease by helping to fund the team responsible for the world’s first gene therapy clinical trial
  • saving the sight of thousands of premature babies through understanding and controlling levels of oxygen delivery 

With your gift we can pioneer revolutionary research that will help create a future everyone can see.
