Eyehope – The Charity

The charity Eyehope was formed in 2007 by a group of leading London ophthalmologists. Our Trustees and volunteers are passionate about improving the treatment and care for eye disease.

Eyehope funds research into all causes of sight loss. Traditionally, funding for sight problems has been aimed at the commoner causes of visual impairment. We are committed to researching all conditions, no matter how rare. This will directly improve patient treatment and enhance the quality of people’s lives. Our current research projects include Cataract Surgery and Macular Degeneration.


Eyehope supports health professionals with a wide variety of training needs so they can deliver better patient care. We run national courses to optimise the knowledge and skills of those treating eye conditions.

Eyehope’s aim is to enable medical teams to give the best possible care to all patients.

Every day in the UK another
100 people start to lose their sight.
