The British Eye Research Foundation Charity Profile

Fight for Sight is the UKs leading charity dedicated to funding research into the prevention and treatment of blindness and eye disease.

The charity merged with the British Eye Research Foundation in October 2005 to increase efficiency and strengthen our effectiveness in the fight against blindness. Since then, Fight for Sight has committed more than 3m towards eye research, taking our current research commitments to over 5m. We are proud of our many achievements, which include providing 1m towards a state-of-the-art research unit in the new Children's Eye Centre at London's Moorfields Eye Hospital.

For 40 years Fight for Sight has funded research into a wide range of eye diseases including cataract, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease and genetic defects which cause visual disability in children and young people. Funded research is based at centres of excellence, primarily across the UK, including the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, Moorfields and St Thomas's in London. We are the largest national charity dedicated to funding eye research in the UK.

Each year Fight for Sight invites applications for research grants. Applications are then peer-reviewed by a scientific panel of 14 members and also by international leaders in the relevant fields. Only the best are chosen for support. In 2007, Fight for Sight committed 1.55 million to 13 groundbreaking eye research projects across the UK, taking our current research commitment to over 5 million.
