Funding research into blindness

Please listen to the ‘In Touch’ programme on BBC Radio 4 to catch Head of Research at Fight for Sight, Dr Rubina Ahmed and Professor Chris Hammond talking about the launch of their new 2020 campaign.

During the show, they’ll discuss the ‘1 to 20’ funding gap – only 1% of public funding is dedicated to treating sight loss despite 20% of people being affected by serious sight loss in their lifetime – and why they’re calling for an increase in funding for eye research.
