Only more research will stop people going blind!

Two million people in the UK are currently living with a significant degree of sight loss. Yet only 2% of all medical research is directed at eye disease. Without more investment in research the number of people with significant sight loss is predicted to double to four million by 2050. Please help us combat blindness now.

Two million people worldwide suffer from Inherited retinal diseases (IRDs), of which Retinitis Pigmentosa is the most common. Collectively, they are the major cause of inherited sight loss, ultimately often leading to total blindness and with profound impacts on patients, their families and society.
