Welcome to the Fighting for Sight Aberdeen website.
Help us to raise £25k for a Specular microscope, essential equipment to evaluate the cornea (transparent layer at the front of the eye) before and after corneal transplant by going to our page on JustGiving and making a donation. Thank you.
Fighting for Sight was established in 2001 to protect the vision of people in Grampian. The charity is based in the Eye-out patient department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Vision loss affects a patient’s independence, mobility and quality of life. 800 patients are seen every week in the Eye Out-patient Department and 3500 people are registered blind or partially sighted every year in Grampian. 91% of the money donated to, and raised by Fighting for Sight, is put back in to the charity.
Fighting for Sight aims to; (1) support high-quality clinical research focused on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of eye diseases, (2) equip, furnish and maintain the clinical research centre, (3) fund a part-time clinical research scientist and (4) promote patient education and support.
Successful fund raising has not only allowed the building of the “Fighting for Sight Clinical Research Centre” adjacent to the Eye Clinic at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary but also continues to allow the purchase cutting edge equipment for the clinic and fund on-going research.
