Eyehope funds training for all health professionals who are treating patients with sight problems. We approach training needs in two ways:

  • Supporting individual training requirements where significant benefits are identified
  • Utilising the skills and experience of our volunteers to run national training courses. These have become recognised entries in the annual Ophthalmology calendar.


Our volunteers run courses and meetings for medical professionals throughout the UK and Ireland.
