Every 15 minutes, someone in the UK starts to lose their sight.
At Moorfields Eye Charity, we believe that we can help bring new treatments to patients with eye diseases faster than ever before. By raising funds for the crucial research, education and patient care at Moorfields Eye Hospital and its research partner, the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, we are able to help ensure that they remain at the forefront of ophthalmic care and research.
Together, Moorfields Eye Hospital and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology are the most productive academic partnership in ophthalmology. This means that they produce more research than any other eye hospital in the world.

We provide targeted funds, above and beyond the responsibility of the NHS, to research cures and find treatments for our patients and millions of people affected by eye disease in the UK and around the world.
