Fight For Sight/ Vision Foundation becomes an affiliate of Our Future Health
There are two million people in the UK currently affected by sight loss and this is set to double by 2050, making sight loss is one of the biggest health challenges in the UK.
Fight for Sight/ Vision Foundation has been a leading charity in funding pioneering eye research since 1965. Their mission is to stop sight loss and create a world everyone can see. Sight loss doesn’t always start in the eye, which is why they fund research into sight loss caused by other diseases, including diabetes, dementia and stroke. Alongside funding research, Fight for Sight/ Vision Foundation provides people affected by sight loss with the information they need.
Our Future Health is joining with many of the UK’s leading health research charities who are providing valuable support and expertise to help develop Our Future Health. They will make a big impact in allowing us to ultimately change the way we prevent, detect and treat diseases.
Dr Raghib Ali, CEO and Chief Medical Officer of Our Future Health, said, “We’re thrilled to be working with Fight for Sight/ Vision Foundation as an affiliate charity of Our Future Health. Their expertise in sight loss research offers an exciting opportunity for us to work together to make discoveries that can prevent sight loss and help those affected by it.”
Dr Madina Kara, Director of Research and Innovation at Fight for Sight/ Vision Foundation, said: “We are pleased to be able to join Our Future Health as an affiliate charity member and look forward to collaborating to bring focus to preventing eye diseases, enhancing understanding of eye diseases and their underlying causes, enabling earlier detection and developing new and improved treatments.”
