The Big Blind Walk

To paraphrase Winston Churchill

“This is the end of the beginning rather than the beginning of the end.”

The Big Blind Walk 2018 may be over, but the fight to prevent sight loss, treat eye disease, restore sight and rehabilitate patients goes on! Don’t forget, eye research is still sadly one of the best kept secrets in the UK and one of the most underfunded areas of medical research, despite the fact that over 83% of people regularly say that sight is the one sense they most fear losing.

Please continue to support the progress of eye research via the National Eye Research Centre and spread the word about our world class eye researchers who work so tirelessly to improve our understanding of the patterns and processes of eye disease, improve treatments, improve detection and diagnosis, improve the identification and characterisation of genes and the rehabilitation of patients and so much more.
