About us and our impact

Every 15 minutes, someone in the UK starts to lose their sight.

Already, over 2 million people across the country live with vision loss – with that number set to double over the next 30 years.

1 in 5 people across the UK fear losing their sight over losing any other sense.

1 in 5 people will experience some form of sight loss during their life.

We believe that people’s sight matters. That’s why we fund life-changing eye research to deepen our understanding of eye disease and help bring new treatments to patients faster than ever before. It’s why we invest in innovative education programmes to help train the next generation of eye specialists. And it’s why we support staff, equipment and new ideas at Moorfields Eye Hospital to help patients across the country access world-class eye care.

Our 2021 impact report highlights what we’ve achieved over the past year, and the difference we made thanks to the generosity of our supporters.

Ultimately, everything we do aims to make a difference to people living with sight loss - because we believe that people’s sight matters.
